URUKTHAPEL SOUTH. 7°17.061N, 134°25.803E

Two miles south on Urukthapel Island is another interesting hurricane hole. There are some small moorings for dive boats but don’t use these unless you’ve checked the ground tackle yourself and know you can trust it. Otherwise anchor on sand in 15-25 metres. Move if a dive boat arrives. There are two wrecks here, which are well worth diving on.
