This is a huge ship with lots of life and places to explore. This would be the most fun for certified wreck divers but has plenty of spaces for other divers to check out. Most, if not all, dive shops require advanced certification and recent...More

We are locals and we dive this wreck every couple of weeks because the life on it changes all the time. It is an easy wreck to dive and if you are luck you see the resident captain - a 400 to 600 lbs Grouper

This is the largest and most impressive wreck we've ever dove on. We could have spent and entire day here and still not seen the whole thing. We definitely want to go back.

A fantastic dive experience. We went with Rainbow diving and had a great trip with an excellent guide. Huge wreck so could only see part of it but would love to go back again. It’s possible to enter the ship and swim through the interior.

Don't let the Spiegel Grove's popularity fool you - this wreck can be quickly overtaken by strong currents and poor visibility. In even average conditions the wreck is a real treasure, but for divers not ready for a workout, be sure to call in advance....More

Had a great time on the Spiegel Grove, two consecutive mornings doing double dips with Horizon Dives. Good viz (by the standards of Maine divers), water temp in the low 70s. Saw a lot of the boat, but couldn't find the entrance to the Snoopy...More

A big fun wreck you can dive several times and always see something new on. The coral covered crane was an amazing sight and the abundance of wildlife was fun to watch as it interacted with the ship. My favorite part had to be the...More

This is one of the best wrecks to dive in the Florida Keys. You need several dives to see it all. You need to be experienced or accompanied by a dive master. Current can be tricky and is changing quickly.

Perfect wreck dive for any skill level. The top is around 65-70 feet and plenty to see there. Lots of swim throughs. Easy to navigate. It would take many dives to see everything. Lots of fish to see

Response from Bryan S | Reviewed this property |
The deck is about 85' and the sea floor 135'. If you're looking to dive with an outfit I would highly recommend Rainbow Reef and they will include a guide for free. They are who my family uses annually.
