Dive Bikini / Kwajalein Atoll –

The itinerary: Arrive Kwajalein Atoll and board our vessel “Indies Trader”. At Kwajalein, we will dive several WW-II wrecks which may include: “Prinz Eugen”, “Tateyama Maru”, “Ikuta Maru”, “Eiko Maru”, and several downed aircraft. “Indies Trader” will then put to sea and steam 240 Nautical Miles North to Bikini Atoll (an approximate 28 hour run). for 8+ days’ diving at Bikini Atoll, on wrecks inlcuding: Aircraft Carrier Saratoga, HIJMS Nagato (Battleship of “Tora Tora Tora fame”), USS Carlise (Destroyer), USS Arkansas (Battleship) USS Anderson (Destroyer), USS Pilotfish (Submarine), USS Apogon (Submarine), and others. We will conduct 3 to 4 dives at Kwajalein, followed by 16 dives at Bikini Atoll, returning to Kwajalaein for the return flight home. Divers will have to organize their own airline flights into and out of Kwajalein on Continental Airlines.

Equipment provided will consist of double steel tanks with isolator manifold, and weights. Rebreather divers are welcome; but must pay a nominal additional fee for absorbent. Digital Still Cameras and Underwater Video Cameras may be avaialble for rental.

The Diving: The average visibilty at Bikini Atoll usually exceeds 100 ft. All dives are “deep air” decompression dives, with maximum depths up to 180 feet (helium can be made available, but at an extra cost to the diver requiring it). For safety and contingencies, there will be a recompression chamber and two certified chamber operators aboard the vessel. NO ALCOLHOLIC BEVERAGES are permitted during diving operations. Only after the last diver, has exited the water from the last dive on the last day; will the bar open. Bikini Atoll is an extremely remote, and uninhabited island. There can be no air-evacuation possible. Appropriate conservatism, procedures, contingencies, and precautions will therefore be exercised at all times. Dives will be guided by highly experienced Bikinian Divemasters each with thousands of dives on these wrecks.
