First Diver reactions for the Wreck of the Spiegel Grove indicate that the wreck will be attracting many divers for years. Reports in the Miami Herald and South Florida Sun-Sentinel, reflect the sheer size of the wreck and the limitations.Capt. Doc Schweiner, the President of Ocean Divers who are running daily trips to the Spiegel Grove says that two dives are possible.
A number of Mooring Buoys have been placed on the wreck to help divers overcome the strong surface currents and the buoys will be adjusted as time goes by to reflect dive patterns.
The importance of advanced training is paramount according to Doc Schweiner and it bodes well for local operators.
