It's a good wreck, but visibility is extremely variable. It's worth the money to not have to find your way off the wreck in bad viz and heavy current. Also, it'd be worth it to request Nitrox for the dives if you're certified.

If you are in Key West, this is a must dive for any diver with a few dives under their belt. The wreck dive is the second largest man made artificial reef wreck in the world. This is an advanced open water dive, so beware,...More

Went out on my brother's boat and the visibility was great... We were able to use my third-lung to explore the upper superstructure, (20-40 feet) and spent about 30 minutes swimming around with barracudas as spectators.

This is a huge wrack and you need several dives to see it all. But you should be advanced and experienced in wrack, deep and current diving.

What an incredible experience with Southpoint Divers out of Key West. Highly recommend this dive. Staff of Southpoint was oustanding. Went into the rooms of the ship for the full experience.

Southpoint Divers and Captain's Corner are two of the best dive outfitters. These SCUBA outfitters are the two I recommend to friends and family visiting.
