Reefs and Marine Life

Cayman Brac is home to hundreds of varieties of fish, corals and marine life. Swim with giant tarpon and fierce-looking tiger groupers. Marvel at majestic queen angelfish as elkhorn corals, star corals and abundant soft corals vie for your attention. Explore canyons and crevices, small caves and ledges, drop-offs and gullies, while grouper, horse-eye jacks, triggerfish, tarpon, nurse sharks and other brilliantly colored tropical fish glide by.

MV Captain Keith Tibbetts

The MV Captain Keith Tibbetts is the only dive-able Russian warship in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the most dramatic wrecks in the world. The ship lies scuttled beneath the waters of Cayman Brac’s West End. This wreck offers a spectacular multi-level dive while beckoning divers to discover its secrets and the over 100 species of marine life that call this 330-foot frigate home. Look carefully and you may even spot the famous wreck’s two special residents: two huge goliath groupers named Boris and Natasha.
