Too big to see in one dive. Strong current but you descend on a line so no worries there. The most awesome thing is the American flag that flies on her, underwater. Amazing to think...she sank on her side but a hurricane righted her...that's some awesome power at 130fsw. Saw a scorpionfish. Loved the barracuda who seem to stand as soldiers guarding the wreck as you ascend back up the line.

As an experienced wreck diver, this one still delights me every time I visit. A big ship, with many interesting features. Served by many excellent dive operations.

My son (14) and I did this dive yesterday with Horizon Divers. We had a great time. He is junior advanced so we didn't go too deep, but we did see a lot of large fish. It is a very easy ride out to the site, maybe 30 minutes. On our dive the visibility was maybe 50 feet and there was a current, but it was a fun dive. There is no fee for the attraction, but you will probably need to pay someone to take you there! lol

This dive is great. It is always a different challenge each dive. Overall the Spiegel has great life on it and so many passage ways that you can go over and over without getting bored.

It is deep, so Nitrox is best for recreational divers. Lots of really good history and stories about this awesome wreck.
