Wreck Irako

Now the impressive 150m long Irako wreck stands upright on the seabed in a depth of 43m, the main deck at about 30m. It’s still largely intact and richly covered with soft and hard corals. Because of the good visibility you realize that you are on a big shipwreck. Around the wreck you can spot an abundance of marine life, such as trevallies, tunas, groupers, turtles and barracudas as well as lionfish and scorpionfish in hidden corners of the wreck.

In regards to the depth, the diving at this wreck is generally only recommended for experienced divers.
Due to the size of the Irako, you can easily spend the dive exploring the wreck only from outside.

There are several penetration points, that can be used by properly equipped, certified wreck divers to explore it from inside. In the back there is an entrance to the wheelhouse where the huge steering wheel can still be seen. From the cargo holds you can swim through to the galley still equipped with some pans and other kitchen accessories. From there you can swim out over a stairway amidships. It's important to make sure you have a good buoyancy and do not to stir up sediment which will cause bad visibility!
