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.

The Spiegel Grove is a fun wreck to dive. When we dove the site, the currents were mild but the visibility was low due to Hurricane Irma just passing through the week before. We dove with Amy Slate's Amoray Dive Resort. They were an excellent...More

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!

Awesome wreck, that takes many many visits to be fully explored. The currents can be very strong and at times the visibility very poor, so this is NOT a dive for beginners or weak swimmers. My two dives were in August and no wet-suit was...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.
