Favorite Place to Scuba Dive

This is one of my most favorite places to dive. We go with Rainbow Reef Dive company and always look forward to diving the Spiegel Beagle.

Dove with Rainbow Reef Divers. They were very helpful and friendly. Despite a clear blue sky, waves were five feet high so about a quarter of the divers were seasick. I even took Bonine medicine. Wreck was very good, about 85 feet down. Dive guide was good.

Dove this with my two older kids, who've never dived a wreck before, and this set a pretty high bar. So much to see and probably the safest overhead environment I've dived. Lots of growth and fish (including King Barracuda hidden everywhere). Dove with Rainbow Reef Divers, and the trip was fantastic.

This wreck is my favorite in the Keys. It is rare to find such a large penetrable wreck in such good condition. It would take you a week of diving to explore every nook and cranny. Do yourself a favor and pay the $5 to support the wreck, and go dive it!

The "Grove" continues to delight as a great dive. I would highly encourage those who haven't dived this site give it a try.

Dove with Rainbow Reef divers, highly recommend this operation. Logan and Doug were great guides. Rainbow reef does it by the book, very safe operation. Dive site was excellent, did two on it and lots of great penetration points.

Awesome guided dive through the wreck. Another tremendous ZEN dive time. BlueWater Divers of Key Largo made it all possible and very stress free with a small group on board.

Love the Spiegel, so much to see and do underwater. Great place to do wreck and deep dive certs. Diving on the Spiegel at night is awesome.
