The FAMI Tugs offer an exceptional dive that demonstrates the true power of the sea. Sunk as artificial reefs, the tugs once rested bow to bow joined by a 30-foot tether. As is often the case, Mother Nature had different plans. In an unforeseen turn of events, a storm picked one boat up and placed it directly on top of the other, allowing divers to enjoy two shipwrecks at once. After a lifetime of guiding vessels safely in and out of port, the FAMI Tugs stand testament to the power of nature to all who visit them.
