Interesting boat

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!

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.

This wreck has 2 nice swim thru's with huge grouper awaiting. It also has a nice reef off one side of the ship to explore which runs into the Buccaneer mooring line so its like 2 for the price of one dive.

I just returned from being @ Cayman Brac for 10 days. This is one of my bucket list wrecks. Brac Scuba took us there twice and glad they did. As most of the reviewers have mentioned .Good for all levels of divers. As the Scuba Magazines have published this wreck,it is well worth going to.I would do it again..
