The “Kitz,” a Japanese freighter, was damaged of the southern coast of Guam during World War 2 and came to Apra Harbor for repairs. She was sunk in the harbor by torpedo bombing attacks during the Marianas Turkeyshoot campaign.

Due to her engine room flooding quickly, she sits upright, with the bow facing to commercial port.

A large bow gun complete with ammunition, an “H” mast and the upper superstructure make this a very interesting wreck. Most areas on the wreck are accessible to the experienced diver.
