Years ago the Vandenberg was open for diving into the vessel. Great experience, scarry to some degree, but an experience. Now it is closed but the location and surronding area are beautiful. If you dive take a trip out and enjoy the sights.

A very interesting wreck dive, the ship is huge. As mentioned definitely not for beginners & fairly deep. The currents can also be quite strong but overall well worth a nosey.

We were fishing right over the top of this wreck. What a great artificial reef for fishing. We actually lost a big fish while there.

Weather and currents stopped our first two attempts, but the third time was the charm. Visibility was good and had abundant sea-life. Moderate+ for skill level

Since this wreck is so deep, in 2 short dives to 100' you can't even see 1/2 the ship. It would take multiple days/dies to see all 520 feet of the ship. There are some dive through where you can see the light at the...More

It's a good wreck, but visibility is extremely variable. It's worth the money to not have to find your way off the wreck in bad viz and heavy current. Also, it'd be worth it to request Nitrox for the dives if you're certified.

If you are in Key West, this is a must dive for any diver with a few dives under their belt. The wreck dive is the second largest man made artificial reef wreck in the world. This is an advanced open water dive, so beware,...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.
