We've dove in about 11 countries including plenty of dives on many different wrecks and the Vandenberg sticks out in my mind for multiple reasons. First is its' sheer size - descending on her bow feels like arriving at the front of the Titanic. What...More

Years ago the Vandenberg was open for diving into the vessel. Great experience, scarry to some degree, but an experience. Now it is closed but the location and surronding area are beautiful. If you dive take a trip out and enjoy the sights.

A very interesting wreck dive, the ship is huge. As mentioned definitely not for beginners & fairly deep. The currents can also be quite strong but overall well worth a nosey.

Southpoint Divers and Captain's Corner are two of the best dive outfitters. These SCUBA outfitters are the two I recommend to friends and family visiting.
