Ship Type: wooden tug
Lifespan: Built ??, Sunk November 1927
Length: 67ft
Depths: 25ft
Location: Little Tub Harbour, Tobermory, Ontario

This wreck lies in farily shallow water just off the "Tugs" dive site in Little Tub Harbour in Tobermory. The Alice G was a wooden tug that ran aground during a severe November storm in 1927. The access to this wreck is quite easy from the shore at the diver platform, complete with steps leading down to the water. The site is know as the "Tugs" because there are a number of other tugs that reside at the site, including the Robert K, the John & Alice, and the Bob Foote. While these tugs have been burned or have been torn apart over the years, the Alice G is the most intact of the group. The wreck lies in about 25 feet of water, sitting almost upright, but with a slight lean on it's starboard side. Of interest are the boilers, steam engine, anchor, and the railings.

The site is a popular open water training site, which means that the entry way can be very busy during the mainstream dive months.
