The Sea Tiger is the deepest regularly dove wreck in Hawaii. Over 150ft long, this forcibly retired smuggling vessel lies in a protected area off Waikiki, and can often still be dove when other dive sites are washed out due to weather. White spotted eagle rays, large puffer fish, and scribbled filefish are often found in the water column here. A resident Commerson's frogfish is often spotted here as well.

This 168-foot vessel was sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef. Marine life and growth is still in the early stages. This wreck offers penetration through its cargo holds, passageways and stairwells surrounding the outer portion of the ship. Exploration of the inner cabins and passageways is restricted by means of welded barriers. The Sea Tiger is visited daily by Atlantis Submarines. For added safety, it is highly recommended that divers stay clear of the submarine and pay particular attention when transiting between the surface and the wreck. Although this wreck is relatively new, it has already attracted numerous species of fish including, squirrelfish and filefish, along with visits from morays and occasional reef sharks.
