The Sheridan was sunk off the coast of Clearwater as part of Florida's artificial reef program. She is 180 feet long and sits fully upright with a maximum depth of around 80 feet. Her deck is only 40 feet below the surface, and goliath grouper, barracuda, amberjack, triggerfish, and the occasional shark can be spotted here.
The Blackthorn is one of the most popular dives in the Tampa area. Located in 80 feet of water, this 180 foot Coast Guard Tender is broken into 2 large sections that lie upside down. It collided with a large freighter and sank just west of the Skyway Bridge. The ship was raised, but damage was too extensive, so it was sunk in the artificial reef system in 80 feet of water. Goliath grouper, snapper, mackerel, and schools of spadefish call the Blackthorn home.
The "Flower Barge" or "Cocaine Barge" as some call it lies about 1/10 of a mile from the Sheridan, and some say it is the best dive in the area!
Meet time is at 6:30AM. Please see below for directions.
The boat address is 198 Seminole St, Clearwater, FL 33755. When you pull in proceed all the way to the end. You will see boat ramps on your left and a grey bait building on your right just after KSK marina. Right as you pass the grey bait shop, on your right you will see a long fence. Park in front of it and you can load your gear and bring it inside the gate. This is our meet spot. We will bring the boat around to the floating dock here. You will need to get a parking pass from inside the Bait shop or at the pay station. They are $6 and you can pay cash or use a credit card. You can park anywhere in that parking lot that specifies cars without trailers.
