Bumped into a goliath grouper on the way down. Great visibility today. No big currents. Fabulous dive.

It is just magnificent to go inside. Make sure you get a dive master to guide you if it is first time.

This amazing 500 ft wreck was was sunk to create an artificial reef that will help save the ecology by taking pressure off the natural reefs. In addition it also helps the local economy and provides a wonderful dive location for divers of every level. So if you're a beginner or a PADI dive master take advantage of this unique... More

This was a great dive. We did a double dip. I can't wait to come back after more time has passed to get more sea life growing on it.

It was my first wreck dive, and it was absolutely magical! The Vanderberg was sunk with scuba divers in mind, so its in great condition, with places you can dive inside. There's some sea life too.

The wreck was great as a deep dive for my advanced scuba certification. The water was warmer the deeper we went and we got to see some interesting sea life that you don't see on a shallower reef.

Love that it generally hangs out at 65'. Lowest I've been was 90' briefly and momentarily 115'. Saw a huge goliath grouper at one end. Highly recommended! Most dives in Key West are all reef and shallow which are beautiful but if you want a deeper wreck dive this is it, with plenty of history!

My husband and I went to Key West to get our advanced open water cert. and dove the Vandenburg Wreck. It was pretty awesome! We dove with Captain's Corner Dive Shop and had a great experience. After scuba we went to Conch Republic for fish tacos and calamari and had the BEST calamari I have ever had. If you like... More
