South Seas is the name of a 135 foot long steel hulled luxury ship which is an exact copy of a private yacht of Adolph Hitler. Originally built in 1928 for a German family named Guggenheim, it has changed ownership many times and was used during the years for holidays, parties and business meetings. In 1980 it was donated to Miami's artificial reef program (DERM) who scuttled it in February 1983 in the Key Biscayne Artificial Reef Site.

These days, the ship has been heavily deteriorated with many parts spread out across the area. Many species of marine fish are very common with regular inhabitants such as barracuda and baitfish.
