LOCATION: (lat. 28°00'00.0" N., long. 82°00'00.0" W.)

Ward Sink is located in Pasco County, FL, just West of the intersection of the power lines and Helen K Dr. in Shady Hills.


Though it was once the most beautifully landscaped and popular dive sites in the county, it is now closed to diving.  Mike Ward and family ask that you respect their wishes and refrain from trespassing on the property until further notice. The sink is a classic hourglass with no penetrable caves and almost always has good vis, even after a busy day. There is a permanent line to the top of the mound at 120ft, from there you can explore the breakdown, a car, a boat and the bottom at 200ft (depending on the water level, of course)
