Diving With Eagle Rays on the Ex Uss Kittiwake

Diving Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman’s giant wreck, the Ex Uss Kittiwake has changed dramatically over the years, transitioning from a silvery grey goliath, into a warmer, more rusty structure lying only feet beneath the cobalt blue waters of West Bay. This wreck has become home to many creatures both big and small. Divers and snorkelers alike are treated to frequent sitings of Horse Eyed Jacks, Hawksbill Turtles and as of recently, Eagle Rays!  These majestic creatures glide effortlessly over the sea floor in search of an easy meal. The 60′ bottom surrounding the wreck site is the perfect feeding ground, providing mollusks and crustaceans for these graceful rays.

Watch in the video below as a curious Eagle Ray explores the outer edges of the Ex Uss Kittiwake.

Happy Diving!
