Amtrak and Cemetery Wall - Guam


Loading...
Drive to the back of the cemetery to the beach and enter the water left of the pipeline. You will see some coral rocks above water, jutting out from the pipeline. Drop down there and then, until you get familiar with the area, I used a heading of 270 that took me right to it, or you can hug the reef line to the right. To the left will be a sandy channel with many coral pillars and formations that you can check out. It’s a long swim and just when you start thinking that you won’t find it there it is. At about 45 to 50 feet, start looking for a large shadow in this sandy channel, which will be the Amtrak. This personnel carrier sunk in WWII was part of the U.S. invasion force that stormed the island in 1944. Even if you don’t find the Amtrak, the reef is quite beautiful and worth exploring. On the way back, you can ascend and dive the edge of the reef flats to your left.
