Mohawk Chief

Mohawk Chief is a tugboat that was sunk as an artificial reef on June 23rd, 2003. This 93-foot vessel sits upright on the seafloor at the center of Sand Dollar Complex #7, which consists of six concrete artificial reef structures about 800 feet away from each other in a hexagonal shape. There is much to explore here with the vessel and associated reef structures. At 125 feet deep, this vessel harbors schooling baitfish, amber jack, a Goliath Grouper, and sand dollars scattered around the seafloor. Swim-through are possible in the pilot house, and divers can peep through various port holes.
