Kwajalein ..... a work in progress !


Sorry guys but the trip has been postponed until 201(?) due to admin problems.  

The Kwajalein Atoll is located 2,400 miles southwest of Hawaii in the Marshell Island group. The atoll is made up of dozens of tiny islands of which the largest is called Kwajalein Island and is current the site of an American army missile range.

To get to this superb location is a major epic in it self, with trips to six different airports over several days BUT once there you will find all the location well worth the effort. The cream of the wrecks is the Prinz Eugen. This vessel is a German Admiral Hipper class heavy cruiser with a displacement of 14,800 tons. She is 200m long and sits with her stern out of the water and her bow in 35m. The vessle is completely upside down which makes for some very interesting diving in the 28 deg clear water. She had an armament of eight 8" guns in 4 turrets, twelve 4.1" AA guns, twelve 37mm AA guns and twelve 21" torpedo tubes in groups of three.
