USS Aaron Ward (DD-483)

A “Must Do” & “Bucket List” dive for any Technical Diver visiting the Solomons. A 106m long Gleaves Class destroyer laying upright in 60m – 70m of water. A truly iconic wreck dive showcasing her fore and aft 5 inch guns, multiple 40mm anti-aircraft guns, depth charge racks and torpedo tubes (one torpedo remains partially ejected from its tube) – a dive which must be completed more than once to truly appreciate it.
