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

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

It's a great dive! Great swim thus and lots to explore. I just need to get better with my air consumption or bring a bigger tank - best both - to spend more time on the wreck...

We had a great day diving on the Spiegel Grove. Very little current and plenty of large fish to see. LOTS of 'Cudas! Hurricane Irma has had some effect, but the diving was great. The traveling Firefighter gives this wreck dive 5 flames.

The Spiegel Grove was undamaged from the recent hurricane and a very nice wreck dive. The flag at the stern of the ship makes for nice photos. There are several swim through opportunities for those that do not want to penetrate the ship.

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.
