MV Captain Keith Tibbetts (Wreck)

This spectacular wreck lies on the northwest side of Cayman Brac but is also accessible by boat from Little Cayman. This 330-foot-long Koni II class frigate was built for the Cuban Navy by the Soviet Union in 1984. It was purchased by the Cayman Islands and sunk in 1996 as an artificial reef and dive site.

Living in and around the wreck are nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, anemones, and grouper.
