This wreck is great for all levels of Advanced Diver. With the cutouts through the wreck and the great profile of the wreck you can get out of current and have a great dive in any condition.

Fun Wreck to dive. Saw a Giant Grouper & swam through the wreck. Was a really good time. Some coral and large schools of fish

A great wreck dive with a variety of life around. Saw a moray eel on the port side and multiple barracuda at the bow attracted by the other fish around the wreck. I would recommend a double-dip trip, if available, as there is no way to see everything at the site without many multiple trips. Nitrox is a good idea... More

This wreck is a "deep" dive, so it is good to use a guide if you're not confident navigating it on your own. However diving it in a buddy team gives you the chance to look at features better and/or longer. Look up a map before you dive it so you have an indication of where you are on the... More

The wreck is a deep one so you need to be an advanced open water diver. Expect it to be dark with medium visibility. I was a bit disappointed by the life which was not vibrant as I have witnessed else where

This was a great dive led by Sea Dwellers Dive Shop (The best in Key Largo). She's about 85 - 90' down and you descend via a line. I've read her highest point is at 65' and lowest at 130', but the real tour is 85 - 90. It was so cool seeing nothing at first, then a dark outline... More

1 - Dive with Silent World Dive Shop. 2 - Dive her twice! 3 - Repeat when you can! An amazing dive on a great wreck. The Grove is at the perfect depth to enjoy exploring the ship while not having to go too deep. The photos tell it all - ENJOY!!!!

I enjoy diving the Spiegel. I have only been with Rainbow Reef dive center. It is awesome when we get to double dip

Got a SCUBA Advanced or deep diver cert? Go on down to the Spiegel Grove shipwreck. You don't have a ton of time diving on air at Spiegel's depth, so you'll want more and more of her. She keeps calling to you. A great wreck to see. Never gets old. To me its the best spot of all of the... More
