Guam's most famous diving site is in the port of Apra, where wrecks from two different worlds wrecks coexist.
Between 1914 and 1917, the cormorant was in the port of Apra for a shortage of gas. Sunk in 1917 by its master to escape American arrest during the First World War, the Tokai Maru was a 1930 Tokai steamship for passengers and cargo. It was contracted by the Imperial Navy in 1941 to carry staff and military equipment.
Tokai Maru was moored in the port of Apra when it was thwarted and deactivated by the U-boat U-boat Flightline in January 1943. Tokai Maru shipwreck is located next to the SMS Cormoran shipwreck in the port of Apra. The other World Wars subsea locations in or near Apra Harbor are the Kitsugawa Maru Transit, a submersible tanker and an US tanker submerged as a breakwaters during the WWII.
In 1944, the Aratama Maru was submerged in Talofofo Bay on the south-eastern bank of Guam. About the archaeological submarine world of Guam?
