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

The Vandenberg Wreck is fairly deep and is usually in a good deal of current. This is not a "jump off the back of the boat and swim around" dive, but one that involves tag lines, drop lines, etc. It is a spectacular sight once you have arrived at the Vandenberg and well worth the trouble, but you should have...

Spectacular wreck dive - the Disney World of wreck diving! I highly recommend this even for novice divers - just go with a guide. This was my first dive on this wreck and it was even better than I expected. You'll love it !

This dive was the best dive my sons and I have ever had! The visibility was perfect, the water calm. My youngest and I stayed between 60-79 feet with our dive guide, and had plenty to see and experience. My oldest was able to penetrate the wreck with two other advanced divers and a guide and both my boys said... More

Had a great time diving this wreck with Dive Key West. We had three dives on the wreck and saw many fish. We also got the chance to spear a lion fish on the last dive. If you like to dive wrecks this one is well worth it.

What an amazing dive! You have to do it! Just amazing. You will not see the whole thing with just 1 or 2 dives but you have to start somewhere. Dive to the bow and look down!

Didn't see a lot of big fish but the wreck is enough for a great dive! There will be more palagics as the years progress.
