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.
On a recent trip to 7 Mile Beach my daughters and I had some of the best dives ever! The water clarity was a plus, but what made our dives special was the Off the Wall crew. Tom, Haley, Kelly and Meagan were all so much fun “up top”, and so relaxed “down under”. I am pretty sure you won’t find nicer people on a dive boat.
