The American Tanker is a large concrete barge that was used during World War II to transport war materials from the United States to Guam. During the construction of the breakwater, after World War II, she was sunk. Originally intended to form part of the breakwater, similar to the nearby Barge Reef.

This is a great dive for the diver of any experience level. Offering less experienced divers an opportunity to do some swim-throughs and experienced wreck divers opportunity to explore a little deeper.

The American flag which hangs from the pilothouse is always a popular photo opportunity.
