There are many wreck dives out there but what are some of the ones that you enjoyed the most?

I myself have not experienced anything fascinating other than a small ferry boat dive while I was in the Bahamas. I would however like to dive the USS Oriskany in Pensacola, FL. Has any member out there dove this site yet. Thanks

How about these?

* Speigel Grove
* USCG Duane
* USCG Bibb (sister ship to the Duane)
* Benwood
* Eagle

plus many others

Heck... I even enjoy the "wreck" of the houseboat in the local quarry.

any wreck is "what you make of it". :D

I have no favorite wrecks. Only "wrecks" I've been to are the crappy fishing boats sunk as dive attractions. Been in one cabin cruiser, but it was an intentional wreck too. One of these days I'm going to run away from home and do some real wreck diving!

All those and the City of Washington, Hilma Hooker, New York. Growing tires of diving cleaned wrecks. I would love to dive some real wrecks and maybe find something worthy of the mantle.

The City of Washington is a great wreck also. I did about 3 or 4 dives on it last month when I was down. The coral heads around it are great also.

I always like visiting Bruiser, Pshyco and playing with the nurse sharks on that wreck.

ditto.

though my "wrecks" are slightly cooler - school bus, van, Helldiver airplane, and some misc cabin cruisers.

Favorite wrecks for me would be RMS Rhone in the BVIs, and Mala Wharf in Maui, HI.

Mine are the Spiegal Grove, Duane and Eagle in the Keys and the Oriskany. The Oriskany is a great dive, I recommend it!
