“Comfortable Wreck Dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

The Kittiwake was an easy wreck to dive. Our dive operator Duncan gave us a briefing that was easy to follow. The dive was easy to navigate and there were many great photo opportunities.
We took a newly certified rookie diver with us and he was at ease the entire dive.

“Living the Dream Dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

We scuba dive and have been to this wreck site twice, both times very different. It is awesome to view the wheelhouse, internal chambers with gauges, mirrors intact and the growth developing on the ship. We went with Living the Dream dive operator. A professional and personable team. This a Must if you are scuba diving in Cayman.

An amazing experience if you are comfortable in the water. Think the opening to Titanic were the submarines find the ship!

“Definitely worthwhile...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

My family are snorkelers not divers and we still had a fabulous view of the Kittiwake. A lot of fun getting there and back on the catamaran, the boat crew were great. The reef they take you to after for your second stop is average gut overall a fun outing!
