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.

We thoroughly enjoyed this wreck dive. The sea was somewhat rough so some people were sick from the bumpy ride out to the dive site. But once under the water this was a wonderful dive. The water was warm and clear and the ship itself is big and interesting.

As mentioned, this is not a great dive if this is your 1st open water dives. That being said, don't miss this wreck if you're in the area. We went with Captains Corner & really enjoyed Henry. He knew the ship & was an excellent guide. I wish we could have been able to do another dive day there but... More

This is not a dive for novices, and i worked up to it all week, and paid extra for the divemaster to guide me--well worth it. Time was short at depth, and you need to know how to navigate the wreck without getting turned around inside a space. Having a guide helps keep anxiety lower, which extends the air too.... More

Went diving the Vandenberg with the Captain's Corner crew. Even though the water was cloudy, the ship is always a treat to see. The Diving was was excellent as they put together our equipment and ensure we were good to go before and after our dives. We are certified divers and is nice to have someone help you with the...

Great two tank dive but the water visibility was cloudy. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it to all divers in key west.
