Hunt For The Samurai Subs

Image 1 / 4

Just before the atomic bomb forced Japan into submission, the Imperial Navy sent a fleet of incredibly advanced combat subs to attack a major U.S. naval base in the Pacific. But when Japan surrendered, the U.S. Navy confiscated them, only to later have them scuttled near Hawaii when Soviet scientists demanded access. Now a team of explorers thinks they can find some of these lost subs in the Pacific's dark waters. From the Hawaiian island of Oahu, deep submergence vehicle pilots Terry Kerby and Max Cremer, along with a team of devoted explorers, prepare to dive to depths of nearly 1,000 metres to hunt for some of WWII's largest and fastest submarines - in a Japanese super-submarine graveyard.
