I never thought I'd like wreck diving until the first time I was descending on the line to the Spiegel Grove and the bridge slowly came into view. Wow!! I've been back three times since and love each dive. Don't forget to wear dive gloves!

This is a great dive site with depths in the 80 - 100 foot range. Water condition and visibility was great!! This is one of the largest shipwrecks I've been on..and loved it!!

This is a awesome wreck. Despite having done many dives on it, I still enjoy diving on it every time.

When the sea conditions are good this wreck is a lot of fun to explore! Because of the depth and current it is not a beginner dive.

A site I have been at on a number of occasions and as it is the biggest wreck off Key Largo is certainly worth the visit. My own favourite is the Duane, another intentionally sunk wreck which lies close by. The Spiegel should not disappoint and is good both as a first wreck and for the experienced diver.

very little current this trip. We tied off on buoy six and were able to swim the entire ship all the way aft and back forward, even getting down to the keel at 130'

I had no idea how big it was until we got to about 90' and the ship came into view. Amazing! Easy penetration, visually striking! this is one dive you HAVE to go on if your diving the Keys. Have fun!
