About these ratings

Captain Keith Tibbetts Wreck is a 330-foot long Russian frigate that was deliberately sunk off Cayman Brac to create an artificial reef. It's now the coral-crusted, sponge-coated home to thousands of grouper, amber scorpionfish and even one or two green moray eels. The ship is largely intact; its remains range from 30-feet deep to 100 feet near the seafloor. One TripAdvisor user says: "Very cool wreck to photograph. … There are canons fore and aft, wheelhouse tower and some penetration. Only twisted and destroyed in center, from a previous storm."

This intermediate dive is approximately 200 yards from shore, so most people take a boat to the site. Visit the Cayman Islands Tourism Board site for more information on Cayman Brac dive companies.
