We got really lucky for us, the viz was excellent! This wreck is in great shape and there are lots of interesting photo ops. We dove with Reef Divers and had a great dive.

Cool wreck, shore dove it and snorkled it too from our vrbo at the bracadere. Only 100 yrds offshore well marked with large bouy at stern in 60 ft of water. Bow is about 80' can see most of the boat from the surface.

Great visibility. The wreck sits upright on about a 30 degree angle. Lots of reef fish in and about the wreck. We actually talked our Capitan into bringing us back for a second dive during our week long dive trip.

This dive is an easy fun wreck dive especially for new wreck divers. The wreck has a few penetration swim throughs and really nice coral growth.

This is our second trip to Cayman Brac, and our second dive on the Tibbits, and it did not disappoint. Lots of life and fish. Reef Divers are a great company to use for diving. I especially like their Valet diving.

We were on the Brac with 19 of our closest friends for a diving vacation and one of the sites we dove was this. The Russian wreck 356 or the MV Tibbetts is a great site! From the garden eels in the sand to the green sea turtle that came to check on us it was great! Plenty of penetration... More

This wreck is shallow enough, that one can expand their bottom time if they stay along the top portion of the ship. There is a reef nearby that can be incorporated in the dive if wreck diving doesn't interest you. We saw a turtle, southern rays and plenty of fish life on and near this really cool wreck.

Unusual to get this size wreck in pretty shallow water, so you can spend a long dive exploring. you can swim through various parts and/or go around the outside. We saw some turtles and rays around it... there are supposedly large grouper who hang inside, but we didn't see them. Watch your weight pockets if you go inside... easy to... More
