Kawanishi Sea Planes

Before the landing of the Marines on the 7th of August 1942, an air strike was conducted by the US Navy to eliminate the flight boats of the Imperial Japanese Army.

As a result, several Kawanishi (code name Mavis) 4 engine reconnaissance / VIP transport seaplanes, were sunk.  The two main sites lie in 30 metres of water and wrecks are big enough to keep you occupied for an entire non-decompression dive and more.
