It's about a 10 minute drive to the Tugboat from Scuba Do. Go straight at the roundabout at Caracasbaai and turn left before the first pier. Turn right at the next crossing, Tugboat lies next to the second pier.

You can park your car at the parking lot there. There's an old diving school situated, but everything is closed. You get yourself ready either at your car or at the porch of the diving school. You walk slowly into the water

 

It is getting deep very quick here and the ground is full of coral stone. Diving shoes are recommended! Swim to the three pylons, short before that the drop off starts at about 3 meters. After 5 minutes you see the tugboat on your left hand side. The reef starts afterwards on the left side.

The reef is at a steep face with different kinds of soft and hard corals like bfranching vase sponge, basket sponge, gorgonian fan and sea anemone. Furthermore you see many flamingo tongues, porcupinefishes, balloonfishes, (juvenile) spotted drum fish, big parrot fish all on and around the wrack.
