Sunk in 1990 as part of the Escambia County Artificial Reef Project, this 65-foot long tug boat sits on the sandy bottom in 82 feet of water, eight miles south of Pensacola pass. As of 2002, the wheelhouse and upper deck have disappeared according to the Escambia County Marine Resources Division.
Fish swim in abundance around the wreck, greeting divers as they approach the ship. The sand surrounding the wreck is littered with starfish, shells, and sand dollars. The Sylvia is said to be one of the best dives in the Pensacola area.
