Awesome diving

A great dive, even though I've done it hundreds of times. I have a personal connection, since my Dad's twin brother actually served on the ship

Tons of fun. Still a relatively new wreck so it's still growing. Lots of cool swim throughs. Would have thought the props would have been bigger.

This is one of the iconic artificial reef wrecks in the Florida Keys. It lies in about 130 feet of water (at the sand) and can be dived within recreational depths on the super-structure starting at about 65 feet. Don't miss this dive if you are interested in wrecks!

A bucket list for me ticket off! :) The current is rather strong to get down to the wreck but the size and structure of the wreck is impressive. Would be great on a twin-set to get more time down there.

We dove this wreck as part of our AOW class with Rainbow Reef. We ended up diving it twice and will be back to dive it again. It's huge and there's a lot to see.

This is a great wreck dive- definitely go dive it! Our group did this as 2x 30 metre dives although it is deeper than that to the bottom. It is a very large vessel and with the vis as it was we couldn't get a wide view unfortunately. There a safe swim through opportunity that we did and the American... More

We finally got to dive on this wreck & can't wait to see it again...the ship is large enough to definitely go back to see more...we especially liked seeing the ships mascot logo, of Snoopy, in one of the inner hallways.

My wife and I had the fun of diving the Spiegel Grove in June 2015. While it's a deep wreck, it's also one both very good shape and has been down long enough to have a lot of sealife on it (two things you don't always see together). The Spiegel Grove, along with it's intact deck cranes, is large enough... More

We did our first deep dive and wreck dive here. So much to see on this massive wreck. Can get busy with lots of dive boats but understandable and there is plenty of room! We saw a school of very large barracuda on the descent. Check out the flag waving in the current and swim through the bridge!
