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.

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

My husband & I dived this wreck in 2016 by boat. This year, we were shore diving only, so we waited for a calm day (with little waves or current) and did a surface swim to the wreck out from shore (about 250-300 yds) to...More
