The Cross Wreck, is an amazing WWII-era Japanese patrol boat, that was named for the large cross found on land opposite the wreck. The wreck is sitting upright on the sandy bed at 18m/59ft and divers can explore the ship's lamps and its rack of depth charges that are still intact. Penetration is possible near the engine room, communications room and front hold where divers can observe the switchboard and ammunition. At the end of this site there is another site Critters Corner with a vast array of sea life.
