Kittiwake Vessel Licensing for 2012-13 Year begins June 1, 2012

Any commercial operator or private vessel owner wishing to license their vessel for the Kittiwake Marine Park for the upcoming licensing year (1 July 2012--30 June 2013) will be able to complete the necessary paperwork beginning 1 June 2012. The simple process involves the following steps:

* complete and sign all pages of the licensing agreement

* provide proof of insurance for the vessel (commercial operators only)

* have current membership with CITA (Cayman Islands Tourism Association; commerical operators only)

* pay vessel licensing fees (commerical vessels: CI $150 for first vessel, CI $75 each additional vessel; private vessels: CI $50 each)

All paperwork can be completed at the CITA office at 1320 West Bay Road during regular business hours, which run Monday--Friday 9am-4:30pm and Saturdays from 9am-2pm. If there are any questions about the process, please contact CITA at 345-949-8522.

Vessel licensing fees, annual pass and one-day visit passes help to support the Kittiwake Marine Park, including all maintenance of the site, as well as contribute towards an environmental contingency fund.

CITA and its watersport members appreciate the public's support of the Kittiwake, which had more than 20,000 divers and snorkellers in its first year as a dive/snorkel attraction. It has been covered by media worldwide and is a very popular site for locals and visitors to Cayman to enjoy!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off ...

I was fortunate enough to dive the USS Kittiwake on a recent trip to Grand Cayman. I used to work for a contractor in Virginia that did work on the divers air system while she was berthed at Little Creek amphibious base. Diving the Kittiwake was a dream dive for me accomplished with the help of Red Sail Waters with dive master Andy. It was a very surreal experience for me to see the Kittiwake in a whole different light. I am very happy to see that she is still serving a great need but in a whole different way. It was a nice comfortable dive with plenty of time to check her out. I hope to see her again in the future. Thanks Grand Cayman for making your dream and others, happen.

I served in this ship for three years. Sad to see her on the bottom as I put a lot of nautical miles under me in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean during my tour. Rode out a North Atlantic Gale and the old girl took a beating with the NR1 in tow, but she came through like a champ. Many fond memories of this ship I once called home. Treat her like a lady.
