Sea Tiger

May 25, 2011

Today we headed out to the Sea Tiger for our first dive. Back In 1992 it was known as the Yun Fong Seong No. 303 and it was caught smuggling 93 illegal Chinese immigrants to Hawaii. The ship was seized by authorities and sat in the harbour deteriorating for years. Eventually it was bought and sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef.

It was a windy day but the ocean was relatively calm. We geared up and strode in when we got to the site. The visibility was average and the current was slow. When we descended to the wreck we were greeting with a view of the cabin.

Our dive group penetrated the wreck and I had to laugh at what someone had left behind at the bottom of the ship.

We moved back up to the deck and started exploring.

Off to starboard I noticed a collection of Yellow Goatfish swirling around. Eventually they formed into a familiar shape. Perhaps they felt threatened by the divers and tried to look like a shark to scare us off.

After that I was approaching my no decompression limit so I headed by to the line for ascent.
