The Wahoo Project is an independent, multinational project created and developed by Bryan MacKinnon, grandnephew of Dudley "Mush" Morton, last Commanding Officer of USS Wahoo (SS-238). 

The Wahoo Project's mission is to locate and identify America's most famous
World War II submarine, the USS Wahoo. The objective is a non-intrusive search
at the site where she is believed to rest with her gallant crew of eighty men in Soya (La Perouse) Strait between Hokkaido, Japan and Sakhalin, Russia.

With the successful search accomplished, these are some of the desired outcomes:

  • Remembrance of the combatants on all sides who gave their lives for their countries

  • The bringing of closure to the families of the men who were lost

  • The ascertainment of the final hours of the submarine and her crew

  • Acknowledgement of the teamwork over the decades it took to find her

  • The assurance of adequate protection against inappropriate salvage operations

Many other people have played major roles in the search for Wahoo, a few of whom are:

George Logue, brother of Robert B. Logue, who was lost on USS Wahoo
Satuoru Saga, Ensign, Imperial Japanese Navy, Retired
Vice Admiral Kazuo Ueda, Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, Retired
Paul Crozier, Wahoo researcher and creator of the website, Legends of the Deep
Wayne Sampey, Executive Director of Ocean Wilderness Group

Please visit The Wahoo Project for further information.
