This is probably one of the best wreck dives in the Tampa Bay area. The Sheridan is a 180 foot tugboat that is fully intact and located in 75 to 80 foot of water. It lies on the bottom upright leaning slightly to it's starboard side. This wreck is also a haven for large game fish housing goliath grouper and barracuda. We often see walls of cigar minows moving like giant clouds inter-mingling with a myriad of fish such as Spanish mackeral, amberjack, trigger fish, and crevelle jack. Visibility is at its peak between the months of March and July. Providing no major storms strike the Gulf during the summer months, visibility can be very good up through November.
