If you’re a shipwrecks buff or just want another option for diving, choose the Shipwrecks option to spend approximately 30-45 minutes exploring the YO-257, a Navy yard oiler built in the 1940s. Then, climb back aboard the dive boat to cruise to the next shipwreck location, the Sea Tiger (a 20-minute trip). You’ll have another 30-45 minutes exploring the Sea Tiger at approximately 100 feet (30 meters) below the surface. Sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef, the Sea Tiger is home to the early stages of marine life growth.
