This was a great dive site. It was around 100 feet to the sand. It has a cool swim entry and exit. The ship bow broke off and exposed the propulsion system turbines and a lot of pipe, wires and wreckage. Other than that, which...More

You can get there from the shore, but I'd still recommend a boat dive. This former Russian frigate was given to Cuba and then sold to the Cayman Islands to sink and become a reef. Amazing how much life has flourished here. Plenty of opportunities...More

This was a good dive site. The boat is stainless steel so there isn't much growth yet on the hull. You can penetrate the wreck in several locations. The turrets and large guns are still present. There is lots of life to look at.

This was one dive that stood out from the rest. This wreck is in moderate depth, decent visibility and it is huge (like 300+). It has a couple of enclosed deck guns which are great for selfies, and we visited a Goliath grouper, barracuda, box...More

We dove this wreck while visiting Cayman Brac Beach resort. Clear, warm water with no current and plenty of reef sharks!

This is a popular dive destination and justifiably so. It is easy to dive the entire wreck and there are places where you can safely penetrate the ship. Our dive master from Reef Divers made a great guide. The reefs are worth a look, too.

We had great visibility for this dive which only made the experience better. This is a very enjoyable wreck dive. Did the dive with the Scuba Shack and they gave a great briefing which made the dive even more enjoyable.
