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.
Just returned home from our annual dive vacation. We have been diving with Off the Wall divers yearly for the last 5 years. Once again — a phenomenal trip. All of the employees are wonderful — they take care of everything — from picking us up at condo, to taking care of all the gear, to asking if you have a preference for dive sites — and great snacks too!! Thanks once again to Tom, Kelly, Meghan, Haley and Mary!!!
