Sentinel Rock & The Wreck of the USS Kittiwake

Sentinel Rock
A lovely deep pinnacle suited to more advanced divers as the mooring pin here is at 70 feet. Big green moray eels have been spotted at the top of the pinnacle and robust corals and sponge life abounds!

The Wreck of the USS Kittiwake
Commissioned in 1944 and launched into the American Naval Fleet in 1945, the Ex USS Kittiwake was a five deck submarine rescue vessel containing ninety-eight enlisted men with ten officers aboard. Decommissioned in the late seventies, the Kittiwake made its way to the Grand Cayman in January of 2011, to be intentionally sunk.
Within the ship you find ghostly sections like the captain’s quarters, munitions room, mess hall, radio transmission room, propulsion room, and weather center.
