Re: self catering accomodation
For self-catering lodging options you can check a for rental/let by owner web sites like:
or one of the condominium complexes or homes listed by the tourism department: http://www.itsyourstoexplore.com/accommodations.html
Here is information on some of the snorkeling spots. Have not gotten there yet to confirm if they are as good as advertised. http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/cayman-islands/339921-sister-island-snorkel-sites.html
Travel Tips for Cayman Brac
Dive the 356 Wreck
The 356 Wreck is a Russian Frigate (usually mistakenly referred to as a Destroyer) that was acquired from Cuba after the fall of the Soviet Union. Because the Russian Federation was short on funds, they essentially abandoned the ship. The Cayman Islands picked the ship up and renamed it the Capt. Keith Tibbets. Sunk in 1996, the ship has some good growth on it along with a large grouper named Boris.
The Wreck can be viewed from about 35' at the top to around 90' at the base of the bow. It sits in the sand near the wall and some reef. There are some areas to penetrate the wreck in the forward section and a little trickier penetration in the aft. If you plan on penetrating, bring a light to look around. Due to the Depth of parts of the boat, it would be a good idea to consider diving Nitrox to extend the bottom time. Divi Tiara offers Nitrox and the dive guides will assist with tours through the wreck as well.
