This world-famous artificial reef was until recently the biggest wreck in the world sunk especially for divers. The wreck is now upright. Most of the openings have been widened and secured with lines, so that advanced divers can easily do a variety of exciting swim-throughs with daylight. For "pros", the wreck offers lots of additional possibilities.
The USS Spiegel Grove is the flag ship of all wreck dives in the Florida Keys. The USS Spiegel Grove was originally a Landing Ship Dock (LSD 32). It was sunk of the coast of Key Largo in 2002 to create an artificial reef. The ship measures 510 feet in length and 84 feet across at its widest point. The ship now lies at 134 feet at its deepest point, its highest point being around 60 feet.
