Mosquito Wreck is one of Lankayan Island's 3 wreck diving sites. The ship was once part of the Mosquito Fleet maintained by the Japanese during World War II.
The wreck itself has some great items of interest - from the bow gun which still remains intact to other interesting bits and pieces of its original cargo. As for fish life, around the surrounding waters you might come across schools of jacks and barracuda, plenty of tropical grouper species, with the occasional manta ray or even whale sharks.
