In 1994, 29 refugees fleeing Cuba used the Santa Lucia, a 47 foot turtle boat, for their voyage to the United States. In 1997 the vessel was brought out of storage in a Naples boat yard and towed to sea to become part of and artificial reef site. While being towed, the boat began to take on water and sank well short of the intended deployment site in 24 feet of water about 3.8 miles west of Gordon Pass. In an effort to hold the wreck in place, concrete beams and pylons were placed on and around the wreck. Visibility in the area is generally 5' to 10' making this a tough dive.
