“It will take more than a few dives...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

To see it all. Well worth the trip. Looking forward to seeing more next trip. It has it all, huge groupers, schools of barracuda and the occasional shark. Can get deep too so if ya wanna, break out the trimix!

“Great Wreck to Dive in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Was taken by the sheer size of this wreck (522' long) and only saw a small portion. Enjoyable trip out to the wreck with other divers. The wreck is easy to descend to. Only down side is that with no decompression, you have 17 minutes max on the wreck. About 26-30 minutes round trip from the surface. Many accessible compartments to swim through. Did 4 dives on the wreck and only scratched the surface.

“Scuba dive Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Every year in Dec I travel to Key West Fl to take is some exciting and relaxing diving. Southpoint Divers is the only place I book all of my dives. The crew with Tropical Mike as captain, are always accommodating with early departures and tie ups on the Vandenburg. Their desent lines make getting to the Vandy easy, even if the seas are bumpy. Their boat is alway clean and has plenty of room. Crew is very professional . Lots of smiles and help if needed. Safety is always priority . Great dives. If one site doesn't look good, no problem, they will find another. The Vandenburg dive is a jungle gym of adventure. Dive through the bridge and radar dishes. Easy dive . A guide might get you through more of the dive with your bottom time limits.

“Very cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I booked a trip with Southpoint Divers to explore the Vandenberg. If you dive, your trip wont be complete without diving this amazing wreck. It will be my first stop on my next visit to Key West!
