“Excellent site, excellent service”
Reviewed 14 January 2011

I dove the Kittiwake last weekend with Divers Down and had an excellent experience. The wreck is brand new but the guide already knew his way around, the boat trip was fast and comfortable and reception was excellent. I dive with Divers Down regularly, but the new Kittiwake attraction is going to get me back in the water much more regularly. Excellent all round.

“Fantastic Experience with Divers Down at Kittiwake”
Reviewed 13 January 2011

I have over 300 dives in the Cayman Islands over the years and my experience with Diver Down at Kittiwake might have been my best ever. It is a brand new shipwreck that was just sunk last week.. There was one divemaster for each 5 divers. They gave us a through briefing and reviewed what to look for on the 5 decks of the ship. They added their normal humor and personality to make the day an especially memorable one. I would dive with Divers Down any time I am in the Cayman Islands.
