Wreck Dives in Key West
CAYMAN SALVAGE MASTER – 90 to 95 ft. depth. This wreck is a 180 foot long, steel hulled buoy tender that was sunk in 1985. The CAYMAN is your best opportunity to interact with goliath groupers (large jewfish) and moray eels. The staff supervised dive is generally on the deck, where all the marine life action takes place. Your second dive is to one of our less traveled shallow reef sites.
VANDENBERG – 95 TO 100 ft. depth to the deck. This world class wreck is over 520 ft. in length. It is the largest most accessible artificial reef and sits in 145 ft. of water. This World War II troop transport also served as a missile tracker during the cold war. Her signature giant radar dishes were used to track the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo capsules. Our guided dive on the deck will lead you in exploration of its unique super structure, radar dishes, bridge, com-rooms and crown nest on an air profile.
Our customers Are Talking
Thankfully we decided to go ahead with Dive Key West....We couldn't have been happier. The instructor Jarrett did an excellent job getting us over the first day nerves and running us through the two day course.
First of all, the dive crew was a blast! They were friendly, knowledgeable and hilarious. They made the experience great from start to finish.

Setting The Bar High
Blue Star Operater
Dive Key West, Inc. was the first dive facility in the Lower Keys to quality as a Blue Star Operator. This designation is awarded to operators who are dedicated to coral reef education and preservation. Bob Holston and Cece Roycraft the owners of Dive Key West have been involved in many initiatives for the preservation of the Florida Keys coral reefs for the past 44 years. They had the honor of being the citizens to go before Congress requesting the Keys be designated a National Marine Sanctuary. As Capt.
