I wanted to provide updated instructions on how to find the Nakaya, as I had problems with what I found in my research. The Nakaya is a good dive, but I'd not recommend it to any novice/beginner divers due to the extreme surface swim, the deep depth, and the danger of the wreck itself. Directions to the Nakaya, starting from the stairs down to the water:
-Swim to the very last and very far white surface buoy on the extreme right (closest to shore).
-It is a long swim, about 320m using the ruler tool in Google Earth.
-Descend along the line from the buoy all the way to the bottom (depth about 25m).
-If you face a compass bearing of 30 degrees (or just ballpark North), and then turn 90 degrees to your left and start swimming, you'll run right into the Nakaya.
-The Nakaya is not far from the line. Maybe 20 or 30 feet. If you miss it for some reason, return to the line and try again.
