USS Spiegel Grove (LSD-32)

Wreck Diving in Key Largo with Sail Fish Scuba

Everyone’s favorite deep wreck dive in Key Largo by far. Sunk as an artificial reef off the coast of Key Largo, Florida on 17 May 2002. She laid on her side for a few years until Hurricane Dennis with an act of nature righted her during the storm. She has since been sitting perfectly upright and proud for all to see. Max depth under the stern at props is 144 feet. Shallowest depth at superstructure is 62 feet. Total length from bow to stern 510 feet. Due to the massive size of this wreck, it is best to plan a series of 4 dives to view entire wreck. Many shops including Sail Fish Scuba offer “double dip dives” so you can get to see a lot of the wreck on one two tank boat trip to this wreck.
