Built in 1919, the Japanese cargo ship San Francisco Maru served as a transport between Japan and the “Inner South Seas” before arriving in Truk Lagoon on February 5, 1944. Two weeks later, a Grumman TBF Avenger from the USS Essex scored a direct hit, sending the it to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Rediscovered by Jaques Cousteau in 1969, San Francisco Maru is known as the “Million Dollar Wreck” due to the value of its military cargo, including three Type 95 Ha Go tanks.
