Cayman Island’s Newest ReefPosted on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 at 10:23 am by Shawnpaul
A 1945 vintage submarine rescue ship, the USS Kittiwake was skillfully laid to rest this past week 62 feet underneath the surface. The 47 foot tall ship will be easily accessible to tourists and become desired real estate for the native marine life. The intention was to honor the ship that served ocean-bound divers and the U.S. Military by giving it a useful burial. Man made reefs are becoming increasingly more common which is great as some of our natural reefs are facing challenges. To find out more about the USS kittiwake’s journey, click here.
