After having studied the Soviet Navy, a dive on a real Russian Frigate was quite a treat! Most of the ship was there, with much life on it. I thought the swim-throughs looked a little tight for no wetsuit, but to explore the outside of this wreck made for a great dive. As always, the dive team Tom and BJ... More

We dove this wreck while visiting Cayman Brac Beach resort. Clear, warm water with no current and plenty of reef sharks!

This is a popular dive destination and justifiably so. It is easy to dive the entire wreck and there are places where you can safely penetrate the ship. Our dive master from Reef Divers made a great guide. The reefs are worth a look, too.

We had to do this as a shore dive due to tropical storm Earl, its a very long swim out to the wreck, but its worth the effort, you can park at a small park and swim out to the wreck, a boat dive is much easier. Great shallow water diver, not below 100 ft.

We had great visibility for this dive which only made the experience better. This is a very enjoyable wreck dive. Did the dive with the Scuba Shack and they gave a great briefing which made the dive even more enjoyable.

If you like diving wrecks, and I do, the Tibbets should be on your list of wrecks to dive. I would suggest you dive with Scuba Shack as they are very knowledgeable of this site.

This was a super awesome wreck dive! My favorite dive of my trip. I dove here with brac scuba shack and they were awesome to dive with. They took us around the entire ship and through a couple of the swim throughs on the wreck. We saw a turtle here and it swam around the guns on the ship. We... More

This is a nice wreck dive on Cayman Brac. Some areas of the wreck can be penetrated. Excellent photo ops at the gun turrets
