“Probably my favorite dive spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is a shallower dive than the wall dive, but the critters that are there are amazing. Big and little. Lobsters to squid, to Jawfish, sting rays, turtles and grouper are all here. If you like assorted critters on your dive, this is the place I recommend.

“Mixing Bowl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

This is probably the archetypical Little Cayman dive site. It is located at the point where a number of reef, coral and wall systems collide and the marine life is stunning. Literally, everything in the Caribbean seems to go through this site.

“The Name Says It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The best indicator of how good this site is that we had a boat full of experienced divers. I don't mean a few years, I mean decades of diving. We dived Mixing Bowl the first day. By mid week we asked to go back. It's not that the other sites aren't great. They are but for pure variety it's just hard to beat Mixing Bowl.

“Mixing Bowl best dive site.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This dive site is at the intersection of Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Byte. Very interesting formations, a cathedral-like swim through down the wall, lots of fish. This was probably our favorite dive site of the week, although all were worth diving.

“Wall, Sand, Flats, Corals, Sponges... Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Likely one of my favourite dives of the whole trip (and they are all great) with so much to see and so healthy.
