Diving was not the best here. Little to poor visibility; however, a must for all divers nonetheless. Make sure to swing by the hanging skeleton -- wonder what his story was? check out the US and POW-MIA flags in addition to the variety of sea...More

Best dive shop we've found. Very friendly staff and great locations. Did two dives on the Vandenberg. It was awesome.

Have dove the Vandy with Southpoint and Captain's Corner. Can't get enough. So much to see. Watch your bottom time and you can get 2 good dives on her.

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

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.
