Probably the greatest dive site on BBay, perhaps in all of the Carib! Gladys's favorite, a tribute to her , also with her classical training as a chef in a France!! Of course, a "mix" of BBay and Jackson. Don't miss it even if you have been here 50 times, as I believe we have! Gladys, RIP, we love you!

Mixing Bowl is a great name for this site. The species of fish are abundant. It is so refreshing to see the health of the reef. I could dive this spot every day and see something new.

Excellent variety of life, incredible visibility, very warm water. The reef is pretty healthy, and there are tons of reef fish, both big and small.

This is quite a diverse area of diving in the Marine Park on the north shore of Little Cayman. There is the wall on the north side and the sandy valley on the inside offering a huge variety of underwater life.

Mixing Bowl is truly a mixture - of Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson's Bay. You could dive this site every day for a week and experience a very different dive each day. There are lots of fish and other interesting "critters" to see. It's great for both deep and shallow diving. It's also good for snorkelers.

Where Jackson Wall and Bloody Bay Wall come together, it's like swimming in an aquarium. A favorite!

Most dives here start with a swim through onto the wall. The intersection between the Bay and Bight shows how the two differ (Bay a shear wall, Bight more fragmented). On top is a sandy area which has plenty of good things to see, and of course the coral is great too. I dived it twice in the two weeks... More
