Diving Cayman Islands just got better with a new 1945 vintage submarine rescue ship!
Diving in the Cayman Islands has always been fantastic, but earlier this month it became even better! The Cayman Islands’ were able to acquisition a decommissioned navel vessel called the USS Kittiwake and intentionally sunk it right off the Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach. The ship is a 1945 vintage submarine, is 251 feet long and weights 2,200 tons. It was sunk at 62 feet which makes it accessible to divers of all levels as well as snorkelers.
