  The Doc DeMilly is a 287 foot steel freighter with more than 70 feet of relief. Sunk by DERM (Department of Environmental Resource Management) south of Miami near Pacific Light by Air Force bombers from Homestead Air Force Base. Concrete bombs are often used for target practice, offering the pilots an opportunity to sink the ship while providing divers and fishermen with another great artificial reef structure.

Because it was not "blown up" with explosives as most of Miami's Artificial Reefs, it is totally intact. Despite the fact that it was in the direct path, this wreck was not affected by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
