The One with the Flower Coral
Fun fun dive!
Morazan is a fun dive to do. Normally the current isn’t swift and pretty easy to dive.
Auxiliary Cargo Ship
The Morazan Maru, formally known as the Olympia Maru, was a freighter and passenger liner built in England 1908, sold to Central America, where she served the route between Honduras and New Orleans. Captured by the Imperial Japanese Navy in Shanghai 1941 and used as a auxiliary cargo vessel.
The origin of this vessel was for a long time unknown. This wreck was previously misidentified as The Olympia Maru, however, recent historical reexamination of the wreck’s location and physical characteristics (once specifications became available) now confirm that this vessel is The Morazan.
