Went there 3 times and each time enjoyed the dives. Starts off with a nice swim thru that pops you out onto the wall. Then up and over to check out small crevices and coral heads.

This is the site where Jackson's Bay meets Bloody Bay. It's always full of surprises, We always try to dive it at least twice during our trip.

Friendly groupers that love to have their bellies rubbed, thousands of smaller reef fishes mixed in with pelagics, that's why it's called the "mixing bowl"

I loved this dive site as you get the magnificence of the wall as well as the intricate details of the coral gardens on the sands.

This site is one of our favorites. Dove it at least 3 times in 2 weeks. Get the best of the wall and the sand channel

A great are to back off from the wall and look from a bit of a distance. Great visibility. Some neat deep cavey chutes, but don't miss the shallower bommies.

Mixing Bowl has a little bit of everything--parts are shallow, parts are deep. Parts are sandy, parts are lush with coral. Lots of fish life of every kind. If you're asking me to say something negative, I can't. Mixing Bowl is wonderful!
