Since this wreck is so deep, in 2 short dives to 100' you can't even see 1/2 the ship. It would take multiple days/dies to see all 520 feet of the ship. There are some dive through where you can see the light at the...More

It's a good wreck, but visibility is extremely variable. It's worth the money to not have to find your way off the wreck in bad viz and heavy current. Also, it'd be worth it to request Nitrox for the dives if you're certified.

Got in four dives on the Vandenberg and could do another 10 without getting bored at all. There is so much to see on the outside of the wreck, and the inside is just as stunning. I have done a few wrecks, but this one...More

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.
