South Seas

One of the more infamous of Miami's artificial reefs, the "South Seas" sits in 73 feet of water off Key Biscayne in the artificial reef site with the same name.

This vessel is a 175 foot luxury yacht that was built back in 1928 for the Guggenheim family. It is the sister ship and exact replica of Adolph Hitler's private yacht. The ship changed hands over the years and was even owned by the Woolworth family at one point.

By the 1980's the ship had deteriorated greatly, at that time over 50 years old. Although investors bought her to restore her, she sank in a Miami canal and it was finally decided that the ship be donated to DERM, Department of Environmental Resource Management.

Sunk in February 1983, the South Seas has been scattered across the sand bottom over the years, however, the area is still shrouded by baitfish and barracudas. Because of its shallow depth of less than 73 feet, is a good dive for novices.
