“Goliath Groupers”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

One of the best deep dives (120') I've completed. We saw the two resident Goliath Groupers that must have been 400-500 pounds. You need 4-5 dives to completely cover this huge wreck.

“Great diving”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Excellent dive for more experianced divers. More life than I would have suspected considering depth and time on the bottom

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Loved every minute on the Speigel. Especially when we found the bow and dropped down to the anchor chains.
Found the Bouy numbers a little confussing compared to the plastic charts you can buy but never the less we found everything we wanted. Some amazing swim throughs, massive baracuda's......... Awesome!

“Best Dive in Key Largo”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

I've been on the S.G. about 25 times. Both when it was on its side and when it went upright. It is a different dive every time. There are days when the current screams, with two or three thermoclines and poos VIS. And days when the VIS is all the way to the bottom, NO CURRENT and the water temp is like a giant bathtub. Really loved those days!!! Very relaxing, non-technical no challenge dives on those days. But I always enjoy the S.G. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend Nitrox for this dive. Gives you lots of Bottom Time.

“Spiegle Grove Dive”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Huge sunken ship with lots of sea life. There can be current on this dive- for safety, go with a dive company. This is not a dive for beginners.
