Tugboat "Zuess"

Tugboat "Zuess" was a steel hulled vessel deployed by Okaloosa County as an artificial reef on June 29th, 1992. It is 107 feet deep but has 15 feet of relief to explore. This tug is one of the earlier deposited artificial reefs, which provides a great comparison to newer reefs and educates divers and scientists about how these vessels change over time in their watery environments.
