Spiegel Grove dive Aug 7, 2005 Key Largo, FL. Water temp 91 degrees.  Visibly 130 feet. No current. We used Nitrox 32 for the first dive. Perfect Conditions. Many thanks to Larry for sharing his photos.
The area where the rope is attached to the ship is in 90 feet of water.  For more info on the USS Spiegel Grove link here: Spiegel Grove Web Page.

Here is a link to another web page sponsored by the dive operator we used Ocean Divers Spiegel Grove Page. A very professional operation which Larry, Lenny and I can recommend.
