Awesome wreck

This wreck is so well preserved. There is a lot of growth on it but that just adds to the whole experience. The marine life is amazing theres just so much to see.

A lot of growth and biomass on it compared to when it first went down. Actually keeps becoming a better and better dive as it gets older

I've completed over 50 dives on this wreck and have still not seen it all or gotten bored with it. Creature populations change with the seasons, visibility and current conditions also vary. With over 500 feet of wreck from 70 to 150 feet deep, and lots or compartments, corridors, shafts, and holds to swim through it is a wonderful playland... More

I have dove the Vandenberg for 3 years . Each visit gets better and better. I dove each time with Captains Corner. They are the best. They treat you like family. The Vandenberg deck is at 95 feet usually with some kind of current . The stern and rudder were great 112 feet. Lot s of big marine life. Many... More

This gorgeous wreck dive is a must for any dive willing to go down 90' and brave a bit of current. A dive computer is highly recommended of course, but the wreck is beautiful. The wreck has numerous interesting antennas and radar dishes, an abundance of local critters, and is swiss cheese! Lots of easy swim throughs are available for... More

Amazing dive but only for confident, experienced divers. Apart from depth, the ever-present current was so strong both time I went that turning sideways to it meant getting your mask flooded. Once you get onto the wreck you can explore at ease in the ship's current shadow. Lots of fish and big ones at that!!

You can't miss this wreck if you are an experienced diver. You will need at least 3 days to explore everything. Don't forget your computer (as it is very deep) and lamp to explore the dark rooms of the ship.

Huge ship. nice diving. lots of entries. the antennas are really big. you definitely need more than couple dives to explore it adequately. make sure you look carefully at the artwork behind the plexiglass.

This was a fun dive. Short ride to the site on a fairly calm day. The current was slight but we still descended holding the buoy line. We could start to see the first potion of the wreck at about 45 feet deep. We were the first boat of the day which gave us a better dive, but another showed... More
