“If you like wreck dives, this one is HUGE.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

You couldn't investigate all of this in 20 dives. Lots to see and if done in good viz an amazing amount of sea life.

“Wreck Dive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

I have been diving the Vandenberg since they sank it. I find that each year it is cool to see the changes and new life. However it is starting to become very crowded. I personal don't like that some of the people are spear fishing during the dive. I find it to be very dangerous with the amount of people diving the wreck. I personally don't want to be speared by a reckless diver just trying to prove his manhood.
I am looking forward to my next trip

“Awesome wreck!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Not much growth yet, but I was absolutely surprised by the 100+ viz that we had on our dives. This wreck has incredible swim-throughs and a beautiful goliath grouper living near the bow section. This wreck has yet to have seen a hurricane, but at current it's radar dishes are still in tact and is a surreal dive.

“Dive the wreck!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Fabulous tour through the passageways and up to the parabolic antenna! Book with the lady at the kiosk before you get to Schooner Wharf-ask for Duane to lead you!
