Amazing ship wreck to dive, only downside is that bottom time is capped at 17-20 minutes. Definitely would dive this again and again to explore more areas of the ship.

The keys are an area where most reefs bottom out at about 25 feet. Wreck diving gives a chance to go deeper. The deck level of the Vandenberg is at about 95 feet, so the drawback is that your time is limited. I'm told that...More

Got lucky to go out with flat seas and no current. The visibility was ok. It is a very big wreck and two tanks was not enough to see everything. They are pretty strict about their dive times which is a little frustrating since they...More

Great visibility, strong currents. Used SouthPoint Diving. Very professional. The wreck was awesome to dive. Skin suit was only used as the water temps on that day was 81.

Got my Advanced Open Water Scuba Certification here. Perfect time of the year. Waters were calm and the wreck was memorable!

The Vandenberg was a great experience for clarity of water, condition of the wreck, and variety of marine life. Recommend timing it though for calm winds/seas as it can get rough when trying to get back onboard. We had a mild current which eases once...More
