Deep Adventure Dive for the Advanced Open Water certification. We did this dive on the YO-257 wreck off the southern coast of Oahu. The YO257 was a U.S. Navy Oiler during World War 2 that was intentionally sunk by Atlantis Submarines in 1989 to make an artificial reef.

Plenty of different species of marine life abound on, in, and around the YO257 including White Tipped Reef Sharks, White Spotted Eagle Rays,  Moray Eels, and Octopus.
