Tugboat is among the most famous dive and snorkeling sites on the island. Just at a depth of 5meters lies the wreck of a small tugboat. The wreck, which sank here 20 years ago, is covered with beautiful, colorful coral. Because of its depth this is also a nice location for snorkeling. A little further and deeper lies a nice vertical wall. Tugboat is great for photography. It’s also the perfect location for a safety stop at the end of your dive.

Particulars

Tugboat can be reached from the shore. The fish at this site are being fed. That explains why they are quite tame. The vertical wall you reach after about 10 minutes. The wall is covered with hanging sponges, which resemble hanging plants.

Warnings

Be aware of strong currents in the southeast corner of the bay. When cruise boats are moored in the Caracas Bay, this site can be busy with tourists.
