This is the best wreck dive in Palau and, at 475 feet (145m), one of the largest. It sits upright in a sheltered lagoon close to Koror, and even closer to its sister ship the Sata - which lies upside-down at inaccessible depths. The Iro Maru was sunk on March 31, 1944 during Operation Desecrate - theres a huge torpedo hole through the bow section.
