Torpedos are noisy and easy to detect and track. Also easy to locate on the bottom of a shallow harbor. US Navy has dolphins trained to do that. As for an EOD team, why bother? Set off the conventional explosive in the warhead. The US Navy has trained seals (not SEALs) trained to do just that. Then recover the nuclear package at your leisure.
