USS Kittiwake was a 251-foot (76.5-meter) United States Navy submarine rescue and support vessel. She was commissioned in 1946 and began her career as a submarine hunter at a time when German U-boats were still ravaging Allied convoys in the Atlantic. She was later refitted for submarine rescue and support. Decommissioned on September 30, 1994, the ship was transferred to the government of the Cayman Islands in November 2008 to be sunk as an artificial reef.
