The boat carried two G7a torpedos, one in each tube. The torpedos are live so they do pose a margin of elevated risk to divers. However as these fish were never let off, the small prop in the nose acting as the contact pistol arming mechanisim, arming the torpedo only after a minimum run of 250 meters, did not activate the pistols yet. 
To-date one of the tubes almost fell off to the side.  
Due to the general depth, close to 70 meters (230ft), this site is limited to experienced technical wreck divers. Presumably knowlageable and sane enough not to mess with 70 year old torpedos.
