TUGBOAT PIER / HARBOR         (Shore Dive)         35 feet         Intermediate

The Tug Pier is only worthwhile if visibility within the harbor is greater than 20 feet and best at night.  It is very similar to the Cargo Pier but very dark and strewn with wreckage.  The rare Calf Cowry is seen here during night dives feeding upon sponge.   Green Sea Turtles, Whitetip Reef sharks, Giant trevallies, Amberjack, Hawaiian Spiny Lobsters, Dragon morays, and various nudibranchs frequent this area next to the dive shop.  Occasional visitors include Manta Rays, Galapagos, and Tiger Sharks.
