Reef fish species seek shelter and sustenance within the protection of the ship while schools of pelagic (open sea) fish hover above, waiting patiently for nature's food cycle to take its course.

A few years ago, a diver strayed from the wreck of the Taisyo Maru and discovered a fully intact Japanese miniature submarine, marine growth covering her characteristic shape.

Milne Bay was a major base for the Japanese and the scene of heavy fighting. Interesting shipwrecks and aircraft in the vicinity include a Lightning bomber, completely intact and rarely dived. A shipwreck in Discovery Bay near Alotau lies with its bow exposed.

The Pacific war is not forgotten. After half a century the carnage is still visible.
