PROGRAM Junkyard

Level 1

The Junkyard is home to a fertile coral kingdom and diverse marine animal life. You can see octopuses, eel, anemone, clownfish, angelfish, parrotfish and sergeant majors, and a lot more. For a change of pace, try diving the Junkyard at night.


From Kitamae Gate on Camp Foster, turn right onto Highway 58. Go north for 4.4 km; you will pass Camp Lester on the right. Look for a road sign that states "HIGHWAY BRANCH OFFICE"; turn left at the signal and sign. Travel .9 km to the "T" intersection and turn right. You will have the seawall on your left. Go .6 km. The steps that lead to the dive site will be on your left. Suit up by the steps and walk down to the reef. The 300-yard snorkel to the site is long, but it is worth the effort. Except for the rise and fall of the tide, currents are generally nonexistent. Visibility averages 30 to 40 feet.
