Diving in Cayman Brac

Explore diving in Cayman Brac

There are more than 50 dive sites around Cayman Brac so there are plenty of choices for new and experienced divers alike. A must-see when diving here is the purposely sunk MV Captain Keith Tibbetts. This is a 330ft (100m) Russian Koni class frigate that was sunk in 1996 to create an easily accessible artificial reef.

Besides that, do try the Buccaneer Reef or check out the bronze sculpture on Radar Reef as well as walls like Wilderness Wall. Tarpon Reef makes for an interesting dive with large silvery tarpon swarming around the tunnel and crevices.

Divers can also head to the famous Bloody Bay Wall on the nearby Little Cayman Island.
