USS Spiegel Grove (Wreck)

The iconic Florida Keys wreck dive, the Spiegel Grove, has been a “must dive“ for Advanced Divers, Wreck Divers, and the occasional Open Water diver (if conditions are perfect) since the ship was sank in 2002 as part of an Artificial Reef project in the National Marine Sanctuary.

The wreck is home to hundreds of French Angelfish, Yellowtail Snapper, soft corals that grow on the giant cranes across the wreck, the occasional frog fish, and dozens of Barracuda.
