DIVE SITE OF THE MONTH:
M/V CAPTAIN KEITH TIBBETTS, CAYMAN BRAC
 
M/V Captain Keith Tibbetts

Site Name: M.V. Capt. Keith Tibbetts
Island: Cayman Brac Site: #108
 
Peacefully resting on the northern shores of Cayman Brac, this month's dive site is truly a diamond in the ruff. Relatively young and formerly a 330-foot long Russian Brigadler Type II Class frigate, the M.V. Capt. Keith Tibbetts (named after the great dive operator) was gloriously sunk in 1996 and has since had its back broken by a hurricane in 2004, allowing for divers to explore more of this bountiful beauty. With an abundance of hard sponges and coral on her exterior and an array of species found swimming freely within her interior, she plays hard to get with divers either reaching her by boat or swimming 200-yards from shore just to explore her underwater treasures. One of Cayman's first artificial reefs, exploring this site is not to be missed.

REEF REPORT - A CAUSE FOR JAWS
 
Reef Report - Sharks
Photo by: Jim Hellemn
 
Excitement, fear, wonder, intrigue - these feelings often surface when divers encounter sharks. With their cartilaginous skeletons, sharp teeth, and distinct dorsal fins, sharks are often misunderstood to be dangerous to divers, snorkelers, and fish alike. However, sharks play an important ecological role in the world's oceans, acting as apex predators to maintain the balance of marine food webs. They are an indicator of a healthy ecosystem and should be welcomed, not feared! The Cayman Islands are home to many coastal and pelagic shark species, including Nurse Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Great Hammerhead Sharks, and Oceanic White Tip Sharks. If you want to catch a glimpse of sharks on your next dive, check out The Maze at Grand Cayman, Jackson's Reef and Wall at Little Cayman, and Anchor Wall at Cayman Brac.

HERBERT "BERT" KILBRIDE
AKA THE LAST PIRATE OF THE CARIBBEAN - 3/8/1914 - 1/8/2008
 
Bert Kilbride International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame
 
Bert took to the water for his first SCUBA dive back in 1947 and continued diving till 2005, when he was 91-years-young! During those six decades hebought and developed two barren islands and owned a SCUBA diving ?tour business for 30 years. In the 1960's he created the "Resort ?Course" for the guests who visited his Dive Destination Resort, Drake's Anchorage on Moskito Island in the British Virgin Islands. His Resort Course soon became established as a standard and is now taught worldwide under the name "Introductory SCUBA Course."
 
In 1987 Bert was awarded the NOGI Award for SPORTS/EDUCATION which he received in recognition for his creation of the SCUBA resort course. He was made the "Receiver of Wrecks" by Queen?Elizabeth II in 1967 and earned the name of "Pirate" by others, for refusing to produce a map of the 138 shipwrecks he had located on Anegada Reef. In the 1990's, the Governor of?the BVI referred to Bert as a "Living Legend" and in 2004, for his 90th birthday, the Guinness Book of World Records proclaimed?him the "Oldest Scuba Diver" in the world.
