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.
Our family of five divers and one non-diver spent 8 days with Off the Wall Divers and the experience was outstanding – the great staff, the personal service and the fabulous dives, all simply outstanding. …A great time for all! As expected, the many dive sites at Grand Cayman are as beautiful as ever and Off the Wall did a great job in visiting different sites each day. If you’re looking for fantastic service, a friendly staff of dive professionals, and the best dive experience you’ll ever have, check out Off the Wall Divers.
