Wreck locations include the following:
The Sea Tiger - Hawaii's deepest recreational diving wreck! The 189' Sea Tiger rests in 123 feet of water while the superstructure and deck are at depths of 60-90', offering great diving!
The YO-257 & San Pedro - These two ships lay side by side with about 50 yards between them. The YO-257 rests in 115 feet of water while the superstructure and deck are at depths of 70-90'. The San Pedro is a bit shallower, 65-85'. This site can experience strong currents and is only dove when conditions are ideal.

The Corsair & Fantasy Reef - Dive a WWII fighter plane, the Corsair that sits in 115' of water in an upright position. The plane was ditched back in 1948 while on a routine mission from Pearl Harbor. The water may be fairly rough and currents can be strong so this Oahu SCUBA dive is for advanced divers only.

I spent a day diving with Dive Oahu earlier this month. We did the YO-257 wreck dive and the horse shoe reef. They probably have the best equipped dive boat in the Waikiki area. The staffs were also very friend and professional. Highly recommend to anyone wants to dive in Oahu.
