Kittiwake Shipwreck & Artificial Reef, West Bay

4.7
Explore the wreckage of a former World WarII U.S. submarine rescue ship at Kittiwake Shipwreck & Artificial Reef. Accessible to both certified divers and snorkelers, the wreck houses a large variety of colorful marine life, with eagle rays skimming through the sand below. Clear waters and openings in the ship itself allow sufficient lighting for you to navigate and examine the ship's many rooms underwater. The wreck itself is still quite new, so there is not much coral growth.

  • This is an amazing dive site. Make sure that everyone in your group knows what they are doing. Our dive instructor cut our dive short case some of the divers were not properly weighted and kept floating towards the surface. At the shipwreck there are not many fish and it is dark inside the wreck, but an amazing dive all the same. The reef dive was beautiful and easy dive. Simply stunning.
  • This is a great wreck dive. Easy penetration. Lots of access. Close to beautiful reefs.
  • Great spot to scuba dive or snorkel. Best from a boat on a group tour.
  • Amazing wreck. Since it moved the inner dive has become amazing. The outside makes me a bit sad only because I'd visited it 5 times before when it was upright. Great dive led by LIVING THE DREAM diving!
  • The snorkeling guide was very knowledgeable about the area & history. Boat crew & captain were helpful & provided bottled water.
