In my last post, I promised to show you what we found at 90 feet (27 m) at Bonaire’s Front Porch Dive Site.

The wreck of the tugboat New York sits upside down on the sandy bottom, with its bow facing north.

Her remains provide shelter for many different types of sea life, including a large yellow moray which we have yet to sight.

When diving this site, be sure to explore the sandy areas around the wreck.  We found several interesting critters in the sand such as the garden eels and yellowhead jawfish which I showed you in my last post.

In my experience, Front Porch is an interesting site that is often overlooked.  It’s well worth a dive if you are in the area.

Have you dived this site?  What did you find there?
