This is the largest and most impressive wreck we've ever dove on. We could have spent and entire day here and still not seen the whole thing. We definitely want to go back.

A fantastic dive experience. We went with Rainbow diving and had a great trip with an excellent guide. Huge wreck so could only see part of it but would love to go back again. It’s possible to enter the ship and swim through the interior.

Don't let the Spiegel Grove's popularity fool you - this wreck can be quickly overtaken by strong currents and poor visibility. In even average conditions the wreck is a real treasure, but for divers not ready for a workout, be sure to call in advance....More

Had a great time on the Spiegel Grove, two consecutive mornings doing double dips with Horizon Dives. Good viz (by the standards of Maine divers), water temp in the low 70s. Saw a lot of the boat, but couldn't find the entrance to the Snoopy...More

A big fun wreck you can dive several times and always see something new on. The coral covered crane was an amazing sight and the abundance of wildlife was fun to watch as it interacted with the ship. My favorite part had to be the...More

This is one of the best wrecks to dive in the Florida Keys. You need several dives to see it all. You need to be experienced or accompanied by a dive master. Current can be tricky and is changing quickly.

Perfect wreck dive for any skill level. The top is around 65-70 feet and plenty to see there. Lots of swim throughs. Easy to navigate. It would take many dives to see everything. Lots of fish to see

This wreck is absolutely HUGE. When I first go on the ship,I could see that it was big. What I didn't realize, was that what I thought was the sand was actually the hold filled with sand from Hurricane Irma! When I saw the other...More

Great wreck to dive. We did 2 tanks on it and that wasn't enough to fully experience the size of this ship. The bottom is at 130 feet so your max no-deco time on air is 10 minutes. I stayed at 110 to 120 feet...More

Response from Bryan S | Reviewed this property |
The deck is about 85' and the sea floor 135'. If you're looking to dive with an outfit I would highly recommend Rainbow Reef and they will include a guide for free. They are who my family uses annually.
