We came here to freedive and it was incredible! I had no idea what to expect, and was just in awe of how intact the ship was down there! I was in a group and did not have alot of time to play, but really...More
I have done the Kittiwake multiple times throughout the past several years and it seems each time its a different dive. I am not a huge wreck dive fan but this is something I do enjoy doing from time to time. Last year the Kittiwake...More
This wreck is great, especially for wreck novices. It has been completely stripped and has great big wide exits everywhere. But still with interesting details like the two pressure chambers.
A wreck that is actually ok for nightdiving, as it is impossible to get lost...More
I have 30 dives under my belt and found the Kittiwake to be a fun, cool experience with a nice amount of challenge and maneuvering. Our guide referred to the Kittiwake as the Fisher Price of wreck diving which makes a lot of sense. The...More
The Good: The wreck isn't that deep, so you can either opt for SCUBA (if your certified) or snorkeling. The wreck is relatively new so if your expecting a lot of coral growth on it, you might be disappointed. You can penetrate the wreck from...More
A very cool wreck to explore. Lots of holes to go in and look around. Sad to see that a storm put it on it's side, but still a nice dive.Usually has a lot of fish in & around it. Still being a fairly new...More
I did this awesome dive a d it was just amazing! When we went there wasn't any other divers! It was amazing the number of fish and how beautiful it is to see underwater. I did a recreational dive as I am not a certified...More
This is a very interesting wreck! It tipped on its side after a couple of big storms in 2016, and so snorkeling isn't a great option for most of us. The average depth for a swim through is about 60-65 feet, with the hull resting...More
Wonderful dive on a famous ship.she sits on a sand bottom in 65 feet of water. An easy dive with lots of opportunity to get inside the wreak on multiple levels. It must be a great home as there are many very well fed parrot...More

Even if you are a very good snorkler, this wreck is probably too deep. Upper portions of the wreck are approximately 50 to 60 feet down and the penetratable portions even deeper. It used to sit upright and the upper portions were within 30 feet of the surface, however the last hurricane pushed it over on its side and up against the reef. While the wreck is very clean, the provlem us one of depth. Sorry mate.
