Kittiwake Dive Site
While the Grand Cayman has world famous coral reefs, there's another hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. Sixty-four feet below the pristine water lies the wreck of the Kittiwake, a historic U.S. Naval rescue ship renowned for finding the long sought black box from the Challenger space shuttle disaster. Whether you are snorkeling above the vessel’s large smoke stack and main decks or are diving into the inner engine rooms and crew quarters, the Kittiwake is fantastic for exploration and adventure.
