Believe it or not try ST Thomas.

LST 467/WIT Shoal.. 380ft long tank landing carrier from WWII.  90ft to sand upright and 85% intact.  lots of penetration
WIT Concrete..400ft long bulk fuel carrier.  90ft to sand and 95%intact
SS Grainton..Over 400ft long 110ft to sand.  Collapsed, but pristene dive due to lack of divers.
WIT Service..130ft long tug.  95ft to sand.  90% intact
Miss Opportunity..310ft long Navy hospital ship.  Upside down in 90ft of water and listed to starboard side.  full length hull penetration

Most wrecks are tidal and can only be done in slack tide or very close to it.
