A World War II Japanese cargo carrier, the wreck at Tapilon was hit by torpedoes. It now lies in several sections, though is still recognizable as a boat. There is an abundance of life on this wreck and it is covered in beautiful soft coral. Swirling around it are thousands of small barracuda - an incredible sight. This wreck is worth diving for the barracuda alone! There are also many species of flat worms, nudibranchs, moray eels, cuttlefish, squid, and scorpion fish. Huge marble rays are sometimes seen, as well as the fire sea urchin and its accompanying urchin crab and Coleman's shrimp. Sometimes we have several ornate ghost pipefish and frogfish in residence.
