Hardly anything to see. Wreck is almost gone

The Kittiwake is definitely the wreck to see in Cayman. There are some others but the Balboa is not worth the trip.

I dived the 375' wreck of the Balboa in August 2014 as a second dive on a two-tank dive with Don Foster's diving co. This is a really wrecked wreck. You can hardly make out the bow or the stern. You will find the screw/propeller quite easily. The remains are covered with sealife, and there is a shallow reef nearby.... More
