Tugboat

This tugboat was wrecked just off the shore of Caracasbaai and is now Curacao’s most famous dive and snorkel spot due to its shallow depth. It sits in only about 15 feet of water. The tugboat is crawling with marine life and is now covered in sponges and coral growth.

Inside the wreck lives a group of glassy sweepers and under the near by pier sea horse has been often spotted
