The Keehi Barge, was one of the vessels that needed to be removed from Keehi Lagoon (thus its name) by the State of Hawaii- Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation. The history of Baby Barge is less understood than other wrecks in Manualua Bay. It may have been purchased from the Navy, or it may have been a derelict and abandoned vessel. Though it is the most recent wreck (scuttled in 1994), it is the least intact of the wreck sites. It rests in approximately 70’ of water on the edge of an historic river bank which drops off 6-10’. The wreck itself is splayed open to reveal the ribs and interior. The bottom surrounding the wreck is composed of flat rock sheets with sporadic corals and sponges.
Green Turtles are frequently encountered here, as are Sandbar Sharks, Yellowstripe Goatfish, Trumpetfish, Yellowtail Filefish, Longnose Butterflyfish, Blue Dragon Nudibranchs, and Slipper Lobster.
