This 168-foot vessel was sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef. Marine life and growth is still in the early stages. This wreck offers penetration through its cargo holds, passageways and stairwells surrounding the outer portion of the ship. Exploration of the inner cabins and passageways is restricted by means of welded barriers. The Sea Tiger is visited daily by Atlantis Submarines. For added safety, it is highly recommended that divers stay clear of the submarine and pay particular attention when transiting between the surface and the wreck. Although this wreck is relatively new, it has already attracted numerous species of fish including, squirrelfish and filefish, along with visits from morays and occasional reef sharks.

Did a double deep dive at the Sea Tiger on 7/6/12 with Oahu Shore Dives. Had a great time! Viz was 80' and water temp was 76. Completed my PADI Adv Open Water cert. Did a few swim throughs. Saw trumpet fish, spotted eels, sea turtles, starfish, urchins, and lots of other species that I don't know. Even had a couple of dolphin swimming around the dive boat on the way in. It was awesome!

This is a fun wreck to visit either in daylight or at night! I have dove the Sea Tiger about 7 times and usually find a new thrill on this dive. I found a medium sized (2 feet in length) octopus clinging to a deck rail, and have seen quite a few large yel
