The Okinawa began life in 1953 as an Army tug boat and was named in commemoration of the 1945 WWII Pacific battle by the same name. Shipwreck Park seeks to sink the Okinawa, placing her among other shipwrecks as the Park’s newest diving attraction on this magnificent artificial reef system.
She will be will be sunk on Saturday August 19th in 70 ft. of water less than a mile from Pompano Beach, FL pier.
The expected cost of the project is $150,000. Public and corporate sponsorships are being sought to not only put the Okinawa on the sea floor but perpetuate the mission of Shipwreck Park. Shipwreck Park is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit public charity. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!
