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...

Did two dives down to the vandenberg, it was a great experience and I highly recommend it. Signed up for the dive through the Captains Corner and had a guide as it was my first dive in the keys.

This is my second diving at the Vanderberg. I was there once with 100 ft visibility and rough ocean.. I loved. Returned now on June and ocean was flat.. But visibility was around 60 ft. This time we dove with South Point divers.. Nice boat.. But over 15 divers even was a Monday..:-( But diving was fun. We did Nitrox... More

Was on the bucket list and was so awesome I think I'll put it back on! We were lucky enough to dive it on a day with 100' viz, 84 degree water and no current! The wreck is a divers playground with tons of swim throughs, the radar domes are super cool. It is so big you can't see it... More
