Had the opportunity to dive the Spiegel Grove on two consecutive days.
Both days there was a slight surface current, enough current on the wreck
to tauten your reef hook,no more. The first day, there were five divers,the
second day three. It is a beautiful,magical,ghostly intact wreck,very
fishy,large groupers,attendant barracudas,and lovely soft corals.There are
plenty of swim throughs that are easily accessible to any level of
diver.The second dives were on the Benwood Wreck and French Reef. Both were
excellent. Turtles, every kind of reef fish were on parade. I saw a
beautiful File Fish with coloration I had never seen before. The corals
were very clean, very little visible algae. The Elkhorn coral was
particularly vibrant. I can only hope that the introduction of a central
sewer system in Key Largo is having a beneficial effect.The Capt. and his
mate were absolutely first rate. They didn't treat you like you were a two
year old.
