The Skandi Hercules…

P1000775

surely the largest “tug” to visit our port.

P1000769

In fact by comparison thats one of Port Nelsons tugboats bottom middle just to the right of the RORO ramp.

Here’s one of our tugs, the WH Parr escorting a container ship out tonight…and as they go through The Cut you can also spot the other larger Port Nelson tug, the Huria Matenga at the stern. (both Images courtesy of Port Nelson)
