WOW!!!! It was our first time to dive a wreck where you could go all through it. The ship is on its side now after a storm in 2017 but it’s still awesome! Our guide was with Cayman Diving. The dive was very interesting in...More
Our dive group visited Kittiwake in March 2019, and we were VERY excited to see it as the hype is everywhere in the magazines/advertisements. We were not disappointed!! This wreck is a diver paradise, with easy penetration (even for beginners) and so much to see....More
If you have dove on this wreck prior to the last hurricane moving it, it may be worth another look. The entire wreck now lists about 45 degrees to port. It is not as disorienting as the Tibbets wreck on Cayman Brac, but it does...More
We did this excursion off our Princess Cruise. The number of people per boat getting to the sites was reasonable and the sights spectacular. The visibility of the Shipwreck was amazing. The cheese burger reef was impressive, especially with the clarity of the water and...More
The Kittiwake is a good wreck dive. The visibility is pretty good and the rooms are large and easy to swim through even with the angle that it is now resting. There is a fair amount of growth and the ship is not so deep...More
On a whim, my husband and I did the dive of the wreck on our last day on the island. You do not need to be wreck certified to do this dive (my husband is wreck-certified, but I am not). We had poor water visibility...More
My husband and I did this excursion on our Carnival cruise. It was our first time snorkeling. We both really enjoyed it, and highly recommend it. Our boat captain Jack and guide Cesar were great, and helped us all have a great experience.
Old support and rescue vessel (Submarine rescue) of the Navy. Interesting to do (once or twice). It is artificial since it has been sunken on purpose, for recreational diving. It is completely safe to swim in and out, since "escape holes" have been cut everywhere....More
Enjoyed a 45 minute afternoon dive here. Had a guide that led us through the boat. Some of the areas were a bit tight but overall it was manageable. It was fun to do a different type of dive. My daughter got vertigo at one...More

Even if you are a very good snorkler, this wreck is probably too deep. Upper portions of the wreck are approximately 50 to 60 feet down and the penetratable portions even deeper. It used to sit upright and the upper portions were within 30 feet of the surface, however the last hurricane pushed it over on its side and up against the reef. While the wreck is very clean, the provlem us one of depth. Sorry mate.
