CAYMAN BRAC Cayman Islands
Cayman Brac is considered by many seasoned travelers to be the most
beautiful island in the Caymans. Cayman Brac's most outstanding geographical
feature is its 130 foot high limestone bluff, which runs from its west end
to its east end. Brac diving is usually done on the north side due to a more
rugged and rough south side.

For more information about Cayman Brac visit the Cayman Islands Board of Tourism’s official website – www.caymanislands.ky


CAYMAN MARINER
This is the newest wreck to sink in the waters off of Cayman Brac. The
Cayman Mariner was a 65 foot long vessel operated by Cayman Energy
Limited. Originally used as a tender to transport crews to and from oil
tankers, the Mariner was intentionally sunk as a dive site in September of
1986.

The Cayman Mariner is now resting in 50 to 60 feet of water. According
to veteran diver, Craig Burns, this wreck is an excellent photo prop for
divers, and visibility is usually excellent, ranging from 100 to over 200 feet.

The Kissime is a great little wreck of a 60 foot tug boat. She was sunk
back in 1982 and lies intact on a sand bottom in 35 to 40 feet of water.
The wreck is leaning on her port side and is surrounded by a beautiful
reef. The average visibility here ranges from 80 to 120 feet. The Kissime is
a favorite spot for wide angle photography as well as video.
 

PRINCE FREDERICK
The Prince Frederick was a 110 foot, wood hulled, twin masted vessel. She
was powered by both steam and sail and is said to have sunk in the late
1800's. Her remains lie on the south side of Cayman Brac in 20 to 40 feet
of water.

Although most of her wood hull has been destroyed by (wood
eating worms), parts of her machinery and masts can still be seen. Divers
who visit the site will find piles of anchor chain, four anchors, the wrecks
boilers, and some remaining wood beams.
