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!

I don't think the wreck needs a review - it is fantastic for a first wreck. We took our intro to tech and advance nitrox at this site and t the Dwayne. Both were fantastic.

I had an excellent dive on the Spiegel Grove with Silent World Divers. This is a great wreck to experience, and at over 500' long, I could dive on it several more times to see the entire ship. Definitely a must-do, and whether you are a recreational or technical diver, I highly recommend doing it with SWD.

We love everything about this big Beauty! The Ship's SCUBA location...the fact that It's in our back yard practically and most of all the history!!! It's a must to put on your dive plan!

My first visit to this dive site was during my first nitrox/Deepwater/ wreck dive as part of my AOW class. My expectations before the dive were tempered because sometimes pictures don't necessarily represent what you may see. Although the day was cloudy, visibility was great and the current was mild. I was blown away and I knew immediately I would... More

This wreck is huge. Lots to explore, some gigantic groupers, nurse sharks, schools of barracuda. This wreck is deep, the bottom is just over 130' deep.

An excellent dive, with safe wreck penetration possible, and it's own menagerie of big fish.Goliath Grouper and Big barracuda are easy to meet and you work your way along, over and through the wreck

Awesome deep wreck dive (130 ft). Usually a stunning wreck dive with lots of clear water, lots of sea life, and lots of big swim thrus and deck levels.

Great wreck for more "beginner" wreck penetration, meaning lots of places to swim in rooms or down hallways and you can always see natural light. The sheer size of it is amazing to see also as you descend on it. One of my favorite wrecks.
