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

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.
