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.

Came after the storms and had 30-40ft visibility and no current. Great bunch at Rainbow Reef took us out. This is the 3rd largest artificial reef in the world ... amazing dive.

Went out with Quiesence Dive Center. Challenging dive but a great day. The current kept us on our toes!

Good visibility, ~20m, a dive to ~30 m depth. Great visuals and the possibility to dive into the wreck. Our dive guide Tanya from Scuba Fun showed us around and shot great pictures.

I never know what to expect, great vis, no current, or the complete opposite. Every dive is spectacular. Like an old friend, well worth the visit. I never tire of her. A must do!

I believe to the top of the wreck was 80 ft. I know we got to 100-110 without getting all the way to the sea floor.
