This is a great wreck dive. Decommissioned Russian frigate sitting on a sandy bottom next to a reef wall. Broke in half during a hurricane a few years ago but the two halves are very much intact with the every present schools of brightly colored fish, coral, sponges, clams, anemones, and a couple of huge grouper. We also had turtles... More

What a great dive! This wreck has something for everyone, from the biggest wreck fans to newer divers. This is a good sized ship, if you don't want to or don't like to penetrate wrecks you can have a great time looking at all of the life and on the exterior of the ship, it's big enough that you can...

We are not usually huge wreck dive fans (preferring reefs over wrecks) but this wreck dive is particularly fun. You can swim through various (sometimes quite narrow and dark) hallways of this ship which makes for a great mysterious dive for a family.

The ship was the draw here., There is not too much sea life on the wreck. The coral pillars on either side of the wreck had much more to see.

The iron shore of the Brac created some challenges for us with snorkeling efforts, so the easy entry and exit point at the little pool made our shore dive to the Tibbetts much easier! The current was strong the day we went, so the swim out and in were both challenging. But the wreck was great and well worth the... More

Wreck torn into two sections (bow and stern). Plenty of penetration and swim throughs. Been there 18 years and has great, healthy coral growing on it.

nice wreck dive, many critters living around the ship, it seems there is never a enough time to complete your dive. I saw 2 stingrays off the bow of the ship but it was too deep to investigate.

I'm not much into wreck diving, but I must admit that I really enjoyed the wreck of MV Captain Keith Tibbetts in Cayman Brac. The Russian ship is amazing! I dove it with Reef Divers.

Interesting wreck. Easy dive, nice life. It is a prepared wreck but not as prepared as a lot you will see in the states. I liked diving a sunken Russian warship :-)

What a wonderful wreck to dive. Excellent Visibility and the underwater life is beautiful. If you like to explore inside wrecks this is a good one to venture into.
