Well do a double dip on the Wreck of the Spiegel Grove. This means we will moor up to a ball for two dives which will give those divers with technical certifications the ability to do extended time on the wreck. If you do not have technical certifications then you can do one dive, come back aboard for a minimum of 45 min surface interval, then dive the wreck again.
The 510-foot Spiegel Grove, a retired U.S. Navy Landing Ship Dock, is the largest ship ever intentionally sunk to cultivate a coral reef. The vessel was sunk on June 10, 2002, and was opened to the public on June 24, 2002. The ship lies in 130-feet of water six miles off Key Largo at 25° 04.00 N; 80° 18.65' W. Diving instructors call the Spiegel Grove a multilevel dive, meaning experienced. Advanced divers, experienced with overhead environments, can tackle interior spaces. Meanwhile, because much of the wreck is more than 80 feet above the bottom, it is visible to snorkelers and even glass-bottom boat passengers.
You will be required to have an Advanced Open Water certification. Nitrox required for double dips to reduce surface interval. Dive Computers required for each diver. Surface signaling device (safety sausage) and cutting device (shears or knife) required for each diver. We highly recommend DAN membership and dive insurance for all divers. See our home page for details.
Also requires the purchase of a wreck medallion, which is a program created to reduce the cost of sinking the ship.
