The Pioneer Wreck - A Japanese gunboat during World War II that was hit by torpedoes and sank near Malapascua Island in the depth of 42 to 54 meters. Because the vessel is in the deep waters, the wreck is still in a very good condition, almost remain to be in one piece, and has an upright position.
