Located off of 7 Mile Beach, the ex-USS Kittiwake was sunk on January 5th, 2011 to serve as a dive site for the Cayman Islands. The former submarine rescue vessel sits in 65ft. of water an the superstructure comes with 10-12ft. of the surface.
The wreck is very “diver friendly” and allows for a lot of penetration opportunities. This makes the wreck great for the first time wreck diver or one who wishes to take part in a “wreck specialty” course.
Much more can be learned about this wreck at www.kittiwakecayman.com. NOTE: the ex-USS Kittiwake is located within a “park” and there is a $25 park/medallion fee to dive the wreck.
Off the Wall Divers staff are friendly, fun, and competent. We dove with them after a recommendation of a friend who has been diving with them for over 10 years, if not longer! Great service all around. We were picked up right on time at our hotel, and taken care of from start to finish with gear, snacks, and friendly dive masters. …My only complaint was that my visit was too short to go back and do more dives!! I’ll definitely dive with them again if I’m ever lucky enough to make it back to Cayman.
