Tug Boat Mercilessly Pushed Under Water by Massive Cruise Ship

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

When maneuvering a massive cruise ship through a narrow canal, it could be quite easy to lose sight of all of the small ships and other fixtures within the canal and when you think about it, a vessel of that magnitude doesn’t necessarily cause the smallest wake that we’ve ever seen, either.

This time, we witness such a ship as at barrels through a narrow waterway on her conveyance from the shipyard, making it’s way past a tugboat and, in the process of heading out to sea, the massive boat manages to push a tugboat under the surface of the water with nothing more than the waves coming from the ship’s sides.

Check out the video below as this massive machine makes its presence felt even though a crew would probably rather go undetected instead of causing all kinds of mayhem like this. I guess at the end of the day, it was just a happy accident that really didn’t cause too much damage as the tug popped back up out of the water but, this thing still reminds us a lot of a caffeinated bull in a china shop!
