This dive site was on our must-dive list when we visited Cayman Brac. If you have the opportunity, hire a dive outfitter and dive this site. The dive site demonstrates how a wreck can become a thing of beauty when left alone to nature. Grouper, baby lobster and a few penetrable opportunities make this a great way to spend a dive!

Great dive site. The ship is well positioned with a lot of life on it. It makes for a great photo opportunity. Large Goliath Grouper on the wreak and many smaller fish. It is set up penetrate very easily. Take a small light.

Little road that ended in a great, clear swimming hole. Great for snorkeling. Always refreshing after a day of exploring on the island. One of the locals let me know about this and I was glad everyday I was on the island to be able to take advantage of this gem.

This Russian Destroyer, the "356" lies approximately 200 yards off the northwest coast of Cayman Brac. At 315 ft long and 43 ft beam, offers great photo opportunities. Sunk in September of 1996, it has taken a beating over the years by the hurricanes. The guns are amazing. See the attached pictures, some which can no longer be seen, due to mother nature.

Nice dive site combines a small reef, sand flats and a giant wreck. Great photo-op with the guns. Some spots you can swim through the wreck if you're interested in doing so. Lots of little sea creatures on the wreck so take your time to explore. Good dive to bring along an underwater light.
