The Sea Tiger is a former Chinese trading vessel originally named Yun Fong Seong No. 303. It was confiscated in the early 1990's for carrying 90+ illegal immigrants into the state of Hawaii. Purchased by Voyager Submarines, then cleaned up and sank in 1999 as part of a dive enrichment effort, the Sea Tiger is 150-feet of incredible sights.

It teems with myriad species of marine life. Resident whitetip reef sharks, six-foot sea turtles, moray eels, eagle rays and massive schools of fish weave through the ship’s swim-throughs, while eagle rays circle the ship to greet divers.

The ship’s deck sits at roughly 90 feet. The bottom rests on the sand at approximately 110 feet making bottom time between 20-to-25-minutes. Divers can penetrate the Sea Tiger through the cargo holds and bridge. Despite some minor decay inside the ship, the wreck is remarkably intact making it a unique dive for wreck enthusiasts.
