Located 3 nautical miles south east of the Hillsboro inlet is the Guy Harvey Wreck. It was a 185-foot Haitian freighter originally named the M/V Lady Kimberly and built in Holland in 1957, where she spent her last years carrying island cargo to and from Haiti.
In 1997, with financial help from renowned marine artist Guy Harvey, the Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo towed the vessel from Port au Prince to Ft. Lauderdale. Guy Harvey painted sharks and other game fish along the outside of the ship before she was sunk May 10, 1997 in 140 feet of water to form an artificial reef.
The Guy Harvey is a deeper wreck, with the top deck sitting at 110 feet below the surface, and the sand being at a depth of 143 feet. This dive is meant for advanced divers only. Barracudas, hogfish, and lobsters make this wreck their home.
