Kathryn Wreck is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This dive site has an average rating of 3.50 out of 5 from 2 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 41-50ft/12-15m. The average visibility is 36-40ft/11-12m.

Visitors to Ocho Rios can dive the Kathryn wreck site. In 1991 a dive operator deliberately sunk the 140-foot steel minesweeper. The ship is just 50 feet below the surface, and the fish here have grown accustomed to divers, who regularly feed them by hand. Divers have access to the ship’s interior, which has already started to grow a thriving population of black coral. The wreck sits between Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios, but is best accessible from Ocho Rios.

I went scuba diving here on 11/8/2002. Average viz: 21-25ft/6-8m. Water temp: 76-80°F/24-27°C.
Repeat resort dive. Cold front was going through, wave action was causing silty visibility. Penetrated further into the wreck.

Nice wreck dive, able to penetrate hull. Nearby coral canyons to explore also.

Viability was good. Saw some aquatic life. Couples Tower Isle took us to this site.
