Submarine base Dive Site
This sheer drop off (250 metres or more) located metres from the shore line, was used in World War 2 for Japanese submarines to unload and load cargo with a quick escape plan.
Straight down! Its natural sheer wall is the edge of a vast submerged caldera, with many soft and small corals growing from the wall, barrel sponges and sea fans and sea-whips decorating the wall.
The Submarine Base is quite literally the location of an old submarine base used by the Japanese in WWII. Located on the shoreline at Tavui this is where Japanese submarines would come right up to the vertical reef wall before crew literally ran across the reef top and into tunnels hewn out of the rock face - there are hundreds of kilometres of tunnels all around the Rabaul area. The Japanese soldiers used the close vicinity of such depth to bring the submarines to within metres of the shore and load torpedoes.

The Mitsubishi F1M Bi-Plane
Japanese reconnaissance sea plane; also know as "Pete", which was the allied code name for the aircraft. This wreck is at a depth of 27 metres on a gently sloping black sand seabed, located near the northern shores of Rabaul. It sits upright on the seafloor, very intact with both sets of wings, its fuselage and tail fins still in place although much of the covering is now gone from the tail wing sections. The prop is also still there but partially buried in the sand.
Sponges and soft corals have taken hold on the wings and tail section and sway in the current.
