Nashua Navy Tug (Wreck)

Purposefully sunk in 2012, this old Navy tugboat sits alone in the sand around 65 feet and is a great artificial reef for many reef species. This tug has also become an active training site for the US Navy.

Encounters include enormous pufferfish, reef sharks living inside the wreck, octopuses, moray eels, and many Hawaiian reef fish species.
