LOVE the Spiegel! Always a surprise what marine life you may find. The Goliath Grouper that tends to hang around the stern is amazing! Lots to explore on this dive. Highly recommend! Horizen Divers is a great crew if you need a recommendation/

This is a wonderful wreck to dive with plenty of safe passages that you can explore with minimal danger. It's big so there is almost always some new aspect to see and opportunities for photos.

This dive to the Spiegal Grove was outstanding by Captain Troy and Horizon Divers. This dive site is a fully developed reef ecosystem. Luscious coral covers the huge cranes and the gun mounts and carpets all of the decks, plentiful reef creatures, inhabit the nooks...More

This was our first wreck dive and it was a great experience. Plenty of wild life. Bring a flash light. Water is very blue and the extra light allows you to see all the great colors. Easy to navigate around and explore.

Visited June 10th. Viz was 40-50ft. Crossed thermocline on decent. Was fine in 3mm though. Rec diver (AOW). Our group stayed at main deck level. It looks like there's plenty to explore for more tech skilled diver. I didn't see much marine life.

Extremely cool dive! HUGE barracuda! A steady current, but nothing unmanageable. If you have a bright dive light, take it. The coral on the cranes is beautiful but you can't see it without a strong light.

Loved the wreck but the dive center was as miss. useless briefings, bad control and no snacks on board besides a small bottle of water. The wreck is a tick for your bucket list, so make sure if you are a vivid diver to not...More

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.
