As we make our way to the Kibi Maru wreck, we'll be traveling by speedboat for about 20 minutes. Once we arrive, we'll descend to the deck, which is at a depth of 60-80 feet (20-27 m). From there, we'll make our way down to the bottom of the wreck, which sits at 115 feet (37 m) below the surface.

While diving the Kibi Maru wreck, you can expect varying visibility depending on the tides. During high tide, visibility can range from 5-30 feet (1.5-10 m), while low tide can result in poor visibility. The current also depends on the tides, with strong currents during in-coming and out-going tides.
