History of the Spiegel Grove Wreck
The Spiegel Grove wreck is located just a few miles off the coast of Key Largo, making it easily accessible for divers of all levels. This former Navy ship was sunk in 2002 to create an artificial reef that has since become a popular destination for divers. Since the wreck was sunk, it has become a vibrant and thriving ecosystem, teeming with marine life and colorful coral and sponges.
At 510 feet long and 84 feet wide, the Spiegel Grove wreck provides ample opportunity for exploration and adventure. With depths ranging from 60 to 135 feet, this site is perfect for advanced divers looking for a challenge or for those who want to complete their wreck diving certification. Our experienced guides will provide a thorough briefing on the site and the dive plan to ensure your safety and enjoyment throughout the dive.
One of the highlights of diving the Spiegel Grove is the abundance of marine life that can be seen around the wreck. Schools of colorful fish, barracudas, groupers, and even the occasional shark can all be seen at this site. The wreck itself is covered in beautiful coral and sponges, providing a vibrant and colorful backdrop for your dive. Be sure to keep an eye out for the resident Goliath Grouper that is known to hang out around the wreck.
