Lots of fish and great photo opportunities - we ended up diving it twice during the week, and enjoyed both dives.

We came to the swim hole after a long day in the sun. As a non-scuba diver the swim hole was perfect. There is a rectangular limestone cut-out near what used to be The Buccaneer Hotel. The swim hole was calm and quite relaxing. We...More

Liesel and Martin, owners of the Cayman Brac Scuba Shack, Captain Stu and first mate Caz took us on a great dive to the Tibbetts. Goliath Groupers, turtles, and a nice swim through were highlights. Great dive.

An interesting example of a Cold War Soviet warship purposely sunk as a dive attraction. There are some nice penetrations for those trained and a good deal of sea life on the exterior. There is enough to see to keep a diver interested throughout the...More

We dove this site in May 2017. It was the largest wreck dive I have done so far and was beautiful. Multiple penetration points and really beautiful and alive with sea life and coral. Definitely a must dive while you're in Cayman Brac
