Another staff and client favorite! A retired Navy Yard Oiler built in the 1940s, the YO-257 was purchased by Atlantis Submarines Hawaii and sunk in 1989 off the coast of Waikiki. The YO, as it’s called by locals, sits at about 100-115 ft of water, but divers reach the top decks by 85 feet.
Teeming with marine life, one of the highlights of this wreck is the turtle cleaning station on its main deck, where divers can have a once in a lifetime experience with these magnificent creatures. Tropical reef fish abound, along with moray eels and reef sharks.
A very popular dive site, it’s accessible by most divers but can have very strong currents. We recommend you always use the mooring line and also keep a careful watch out for the 80 ton Atlantis Submarines that may cross your path.
