Princess of the Orient Wreck Documentation Project

Princess of the Orient Wreck

The Princess of the Orient Wreck Documentation Project is a collaboration of GUE divers across Asia to provide more comprehensive documentation of the Princess of the Orient Wreck site outside of Manila Bay.


The initial project dives were conducted in April 2018 by the POTO team, during the dives the full wreck was explored externally including the stern and propellor sections of the wreck. A further trip was conducted in 2019 which included penetration of the wreck and documentation inside the wreck itself.
