Cayman Brac's Scuba Diving

Cayman Brac is an island that is part of the Cayman Islands. It lies in the Caribbean Sea.  Its terrain is the most prominent due to "The Bluff", a limestone outcrop that rises steadily along the length of the island and turns into a cliff on the Eastern part of the island. The underwater landscape consists of numerous coral reefs. Local waters swarm with fish and crustaceans. There is also a marine turtle farm, so they are a credible sighting. The main highlights here are the sunken ships, which are covered with seaweed and give shelter to underwater inhabitants. There are exciting diving tours, for example, to the purposely flooded Russian ship Captain Keith Tibbetts.
