The Urca de Lima is a Spanish shipwreck (which sank in 1715) near Fort Pierce, Florida, United States. It was part of the 1715 Treasure Fleet itself, one of the numerous Spanish treasure fleets. It is located north of Fort Pierce Inlet, 200 yards off the shore from Jack Island Park. It became the first Florida Underwater Archaeological Preserve when it was dedicated in 1987. This was followed on May 31, 2001 with its addition to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
