Lots of current

Poor viz and plenty of current. Would like to go back. Stayed along the port side. Choose a good dive operator.

Dived with Westpoint divers to this wreck. It is a prepared wreck so in safe for recreational divers. Depths range between 100feet to 140 feet. Water temperature was 30 deg c so wet suit is not essential however gloves and dive computer is recommended as it is a deep, open water dive. Various varities of fish can be seen

The best wreck dive in the Lower Keys and in my opinion all of the keys. I dive it regularly and love it every time!

Lots of swim thrus. This wreck is made for divers. Tons of openings and places to explore. Two dives barely got us half the wreck. And even that was quick. Plan on multiple dives and multiple days if u want to see it all.

This is a fantastic & sometimes (Depending on the current) a very challenging dive! Deck is at about 90-100 ' depth. really starting to get some growth. Will definitely return!

Amazing dive with Captains Corner. We fed an octopus !!! The surface current can be strong, but once you passed 50 ft, you're good. I recommend to do it with a guide if you're not experienced of course. PADI certification is not an option.

The Vandenberg Wreck was the site of 4 dives for us and we will be back for more. The ship is so vast that you need many many dives to explore it. We went out with Captains Quarters 2 days in a row and moored on the two most stern mounted mooring lines. We look forward to mooring more forward... More

Had a great guide named Adam from Captain's Corner. He was GREAT! Captain Greg was awesome, dive master Tony was wonderful and safety was a #1 priority. Felt very... More
