Dove on the Vandenberg with Southpoint Divers. The scale and nature of this wreck make it unlike any other I have been on and a must for those wishing to fill out their log book. It is massive and the radar dishes are very different. Before it was sunk, they did a good job removing the doors and windows allowing... More

Awesome dive. We'll be back again soon. 2 dives on the wreck. Far too much to see in only two dives, but we had to travel by air the next afternoon so had to call it quits.

We were lucky to have perfect conditions for our dive with Lost Reef Adventures. This is a MUST DIVE if you are in the area. Seriously, don't miss it...

Really a great wreck to dive! Now that my son has his PADI C card, we can't wait to go back. For those of us that live far from the ocean, it makes a wonderful vacation story.

This is one you don't want to miss if you are a diver. So much to see and explore. There are areas of the wreck that are painted with scenes almost like the titanic, it's so cool. Check it out!

Diving was not the best here. Little to poor visibility; however, a must for all divers nonetheless. Make sure to swing by the hanging skeleton -- wonder what his story was? check out the US and POW-MIA flags in addition to the variety of sea life.

Don't let anyone tell you that my home town of Key West is a divers or snorkelers paradise! It is pretty good but is my least favorite in the Caribbean zone! The water clarity isn't great and the sea and coral life is a sad ghost of what it used to be. Tourists have ruined the reefs as have the... More

if you are a scuba diver, this is a great place to see no matter who you travel to the wreck with. It is very interesting and full of surprises. While there is no actual fee to dive the vandenburg, there is a fee to travel and dive with the charter but its worth it.

Have dove the Vandy with Southpoint and Captain's Corner. Can't get enough. So much to see. Watch your bottom time and you can get 2 good dives on her.
