Sitting in just 60ft of water, the Kittiwake shipwreck is one of Cayman’s most impressive dive sites. Given its proximity to the surface, the Kittiwake makes a great snorkel site too. Once used as an old submarine rescue ship, it was purposefully sunk in 2011 and is now home to an abundance of marine life.
To find the site, look out for a collection of boats as there are usually at least one or two dive boats moored at the site. If not, there are many white circular buoys, which help to locate the site. The best location on Seven Mile Beach to locate and launch from is either West Bay Public Beach or Cemetery Beach.
Caution: Be aware if you’re on the leeward side and the wind is blowing you away from the land. We recommend you only use kayaks to reach this location and also recommend you bring a two-way radio for this adventure. Before leaving, ensure you test your ability to climb back in to the kayak and your ability to paddle back against the wind. If you are interested in this adventure, we recommend discussing weather conditions with us beforehand. We will also inform you of the appropriate licences needed to explore this site.
