USS KittiwakeDivers headed to Grand Cayman later this summer will have a new dive site to explore.

The USS Kittiwake, a decommissioned US Naval submarine rescue ship, will be sunk in 65 feet of water off Seven Mile Beach on July 27.

The top of the bridge and smoke stack will be 20 feet from the surface, visible to snorkelers.

The first dive and snorkel trip is set for July 29.

The five-deck, 2,200-ton, 215-foot military vessel will join the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts, a Russian frigate sunk off the coast of Cayman Brac in 1996, as part of the artificial reef movement in the Caribbean.
