Tacoma

The Tacoma is a 165 foot steel freighter that was sunk in Feb 2002. Tacoma was seized as part of the Operation River Walk, a drug confiscation mission.

The wreck sits in about 120 feet of water and has about 20 feet of relief, so it is considered an advanced dive. It is in excellent condition and is fully in tact. Since this wreck is not frequented by divers, there is a great chance you will see big game fish.

Surrounded by sand it has done its job well by attracking sea life in what was once a dessert-like area underwater with little around. Now there is a large green moray eel that can often be seen near the wheel house. Tarpon frequent the wreck as do large barracuda, bar jacks and Amberjacks as well as other pelagics.
