This was a great dive site. It was around 100 feet to the sand. It has a cool swim entry and exit. The ship bow broke off and exposed the propulsion system turbines and a lot of pipe, wires and wreckage. Other than that, which is kind of cool on its self, the wreak is in great shape and is...

You can get there from the shore, but I'd still recommend a boat dive. This former Russian frigate was given to Cuba and then sold to the Cayman Islands to sink and become a reef. Amazing how much life has flourished here. Plenty of opportunities for swim-throughs and checking out the old equipment and gauges. An A+ winner!

This was a good dive site. The boat is stainless steel so there isn't much growth yet on the hull. You can penetrate the wreck in several locations. The turrets and large guns are still present. There is lots of life to look at.

This was one dive that stood out from the rest. This wreck is in moderate depth, decent visibility and it is huge (like 300+). It has a couple of enclosed deck guns which are great for selfies, and we visited a Goliath grouper, barracuda, box fish, and many others. After being sunk intentionally about 20 years ago, the wreck was... More

Excellent dive with with the bottom about 85 feet and the radar tower above 30 feet. Dove this wreck with the awesome dive masters from Reef Divers.

After having studied the Soviet Navy, a dive on a real Russian Frigate was quite a treat! Most of the ship was there, with much life on it. I thought the swim-throughs looked a little tight for no wetsuit, but to explore the outside of this wreck made for a great dive. As always, the dive team Tom and BJ... More

We dove this wreck while visiting Cayman Brac Beach resort. Clear, warm water with no current and plenty of reef sharks!

This is a popular dive destination and justifiably so. It is easy to dive the entire wreck and there are places where you can safely penetrate the ship. Our dive master from Reef Divers made a great guide. The reefs are worth a look, too.

We had to do this as a shore dive due to tropical storm Earl, its a very long swim out to the wreck, but its worth the effort, you can park at a small park and swim out to the wreck, a boat dive is much easier. Great shallow water diver, not below 100 ft.

We had great visibility for this dive which only made the experience better. This is a very enjoyable wreck dive. Did the dive with the Scuba Shack and they gave a great briefing which made the dive even more enjoyable.
