Kittiwake Shipwreck & Reef Jet Ski Safari, Seven Mile Beach
Been to Stingray City already? Then this is the perfect excursion for you! Jump aboard the newest Seven Mile Beach Jet Ski Tour in Grand Cayman
and get ready for an experience of a lifetime as you jet ski your way out to the Kittiwake Shipwreck
and coral reefs of Seven Mile Beach
. On this exciting excursion in Grand Cayman you will board your jet ski on the Seven Mile Beach
and make your way out to the sunken shipwreck of the ex-USS Kittiwake Shipwreck.
The ship is 251 ft long and 44 ft on her beam. The Kittiwake was in service from 1945 to 1994. Her most memorable call of duty in recent times was the recovery of the Challenger space shuttle disaster. The Kittiwake was transferred from the US Marine Administration to the Cayman Islands Government in August 2009, and was cleaned and remediated in Virginia, to become an artificial reef. She was sunk off the coast of Seven Mile Beach in January 2011 and is possibly the 'cleanest' wreck ever to be sunk as an artificial reef.
Upon arrival, you will snorkel overhead and see the main decks and topography of the ship plus take a look down the smoke stack that opens up straight down to the bottom of the hull and the engine rooms. The Kittiwake Shipwreck
is fast becoming the artificial reef it was intended to be, enhancing the marine environment with fishery stocks and habitats for marine life. It has become home to a friendly local resident - the Cayman Grouper.
is situated in a marine park that is protected under law in Cayman. It requires an entrance fee to visit from a licensed operator, with the fees going towards the ongoing maintenance and protection of the new artificial wreck/reef as well as to the protection of our natural reefs in Cayman. The fee is included in this price. So when you book this jet ski tour
, you are also helping the environment
