Cayman Islands - Cayman Brac
Cayman Brac is one of three islands, forming the Cayman Islands.  Known as one of the sister islands, Cayman Brac is approximately 80 miles from Grand Cayman, the main island, and 20 miles from Little Cayman.  Often referred to as "the Brac", it is named for its rocky formation called the "Bluff" which runs across the center of this long narrow island.  Cayman Brac has retained its friendly and safe island charm.  It is a great dive destination with interesting topside outdoor activities, such as hiking and rock climbing (at your own risk) as well as great shore and boat diving.  One of the highlights underwater is the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts, a 330 feet Russian frigate deliberately sunk in September 1996 as a spectacular underwater attraction.  The MV Tibbetts was originally purchased from Cuba and then sunk just off the coast of Cayman Brac.  This wreck can be accessed either by boat or by shore.  The wreck now lies in two broken pieces.  The bow section lists heavily to the portside while the stern section sits upright.
