Tug­boat CURAÇAO

Sport Diver - - 100 Best Dice Sites - —Andy Sall­mon

“Shal­low, bright and up­right” best de­scribes this small wreck. Ly­ing on its keel in 25 feet of wa­ter, and over­grown with en­crust­ing corals and sponges, the tug rests in a pris­tine hard coral gar­den with abun­dant fish life. A school of glass­fish can of­ten be found within the hold, and care­ful in­spec­tion of the deck may re­veal other res­i­dents, in­clud­ing oc­to­puses and mo­ray eels. Don’t for­get to view the gi­ant or­ange ele­phant ear sponges at the nearby drop-off, or to ex­plore the mag­nif­i­cent sponge and fish life on and around the ad­ja­cent pier pil­ings at Baya Beach. There’s an easy en­try from the beach and a dive shop for on­site sup­port, mak­ing this a pop­u­lar spot; as a re­sult, it’s best to visit early, be­fore the midday crowds ar­rive.
