Worth getting AOW to see

A lot to see, you definitely need more than one dive to see this wreck. I for sure want to come back & explore more.

Amazing dive. Used Rainbow Reef Dive Charters. Viz was marginal 30+ feet but dove right after a big storm so not surprised. Saw my first Goliath Grouper - awesome.

I dove this wreck several times through Rainbow Reef Dive Center. It's a fantastic dive. So much to see.

No so great vis during dives in mid January, 2016 but still a great wreck to dive in Key Largo. I've always used Ocean Divers and have always been treated very well by them.

As a Divemaster and Dive Boat Crewman in NC I spend quite a bit of time wreck diving. I'm also an active duty U.S. Marine and have deployed on LSD vessels many times. To dive one, especially in a place with such great visibility and pelagic life was a real treat. I would certainly recommend this dive to anyone with... More

We dove with Amy Slate's Amoray on a morning dive. The strange weather this year has made most of our diving less than ideal, with debris scattering through the water and mediocre visibility. That was the case here as well, although I cannot hold it against this grand ship, so I will give it 5 stars. Afternoon dives were cancelled... More

Great dive for beginners and tech divers alike. This is a dive you can do over and over. It has great penetration opportunities and as it was purpose sunk most hazards have been removed. Lots of very cool fish, sponges and corals to see, I was surprised at how much colour and life there was to see. Some very large... More

Yes it' big but nothing special to see. I prefer dive wrecks wich are not sunk by purpose. If weather is good, it's quite nice ride to there. But at high waves, I think it's not worth it. I see many better wrecks all over the world, so if don't get there, you don't miss much.

Very nice wreck dive right out of Key Largo. Lots of life around the wreck and a short boat drive away.

There's always something interesting to see at Spiegel Grove. Don't miss Snoopy and the crane turrets!
