Contributed by: The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Steven Jay Rubin

Fictional location off the coast of Miami of a wrecked ship where SPECTRE intends to place one of the two hijacked A-bombs in Thunderball. It is also the site of an underwater battle between Emilio Largo’s black-suited frogmen and a platoon of orange-suited US Navy aqua-paras led by James Bond (Sean Connery). Thanks to 007, who performs the same chores he did at the gypsy camp in From Russia with Love—in other words, he’s everywhere—the Americans win and the bomb is recovered.
