Nichi Asu Maru or Kuantan Wreck is a Japanese costal tanker, carrying crude oil sunk in the 1960's, now sitting on her port side in 26 meters of water. The shallowest part of the hull is about 14 meters from the surface. The 80 meter long wreck is still in good condition, and complete with the propeller. Large rays are common, as are smaller creatures like cowries, mantis shrimps and nudibranchs.

The Kuantan Wreck is located about 12 nautical miles from Kuantan and is laying in 23m of water on her port side. It's an easy dive with the shallowest part of the wreck at 14m. The wreck is 80m long and 10m wide and is covered in coral and encrusting sponge.
Moray eels, scorpionfish and lionfish can be found on the wreck as can schools of snapper and batfish. Leopard sharks are often seen here plus large stingrays and turtles. Barracuda can be spotted in the blue. There are also two very large groupers resident here. The large propeller is still intact at the stern.
