There are several companies that take you out to the ship wreck. I choose Red Sail for the catamaran and it was fantastic. The crew is very nice and helpful. We meet the boat at the Westin hotel. What a fancy place.

Like others have said we stopped at this location with a snuba diving excursion trip through carnival cruise. I was fascinated with the ship wreck and just laid out under water looking down at this ship that would never move again if you look down into the smoke stack it was pitch black. One day i'm going to get my diving certification so i can actually go inside the ship. But for now this is by far the best way to view this wreck is snuba.

Have taken my son on this dive 4 times now. Great wreck for beginners, awesome visibility, marine life and with the reef wall right next to it you can see new things each dive.

The Kittiwake was amazing. It's in about 25 feet of water but since the water is so clear it was easy to get a great view even though I was snorkeling and not able to dive all the way down. If you have the opportunity you should definitely make this one of the places you visit.

We entered at one end and swam throughout the inside. My only regret was not spending more time outside. Maybe a two dive one inside one outside.
