HISTORY

The 100-foot long cargo ship Miracle Express was scuttled asan artificial reef in 65feet of water in July 1987. One month earlier, the small inter-island freighter had been intercepted and seized by the U.S.C.G.C. Cape Current while trying to smuggle illegal aliens into Florida. On August 22, 1992, Hurricane Andrew pushed the Miracle Express onto the nearby wreck of the Biscayne, which resulted in the Miracle Express breaking apart into several large pieces. Today, there is little left of the Miracle Express aside from scattered debris adjacent to the Biscayne.
