Foreign one of the most famous guys in Cayman I think probably the kitty.

Wake is the most famous I'm making this up by the way.

Don't don't fact check this? Sadly she's on a different boat from me this morning, happily, for me, I survive, she's crying for you, I wasn't trying to be brave and hardcore night hahaha yeah, disclaimer I didn't actually hit him you're on Coral sister Ragnar's, not happy with you by the way, because you're ditching him.

What was the thing yeah friends yeah have fun trouble.

Do you want to bet for your mom? Do you want to bet for your mom okay good morning good morning? Where are we going John wait? Gopro is up to nine over there.

Yeah give me fun.

I've already started two tens.

Thank you guys understand.

It's called mixing bowl a lot of exciting courage.

Here, yeah, okay, everybody say: tortilla I thought we were gonna get a free day without mentioning okay.

We never did talk about the onions, so we're going.

Oh right, this one is called mixing bowl.

It's called mixing bowl because this is where the two distinctive parts of the bunny Bay wall of marine park meet.

This part here on the western part is called bloody, Bay wall, where the top of the wall is about 15 20 feet and then there's a sheer drop off and the other part is called Jackson's bike which has like an inner reef and then a sand patch, and then the wall at about 40 50 feet and then another drop of kind of like we have on Kevin Rock foreign place had been made famous by the one and only shark who stole and I could see why I mean when we were moving through this dive site.

You can just see it almost looks like there's trees, with a coral sticking up with fish, just almost like Christmas tree ornaments.

It was just spectacular, stuff sight and, as we start moving our way through, we can see the level of biomass now.

I understand why this type say so famous and as I looked down to the famous swim through of mixing bowl I could not wait to get to it.

Foreign S I made a mistake of not being first down and you can see what was caused.

It was almost like at night driving a dense fog with your lights, on not being able to see where you're going, and this is because, unfortunately, some people have slightly off buoyancy or bad thinning techniques which rip up the sand, but luckily we're actually back at safe site a week later, where we actually get to experience this one through as I go through it first and you'll get to see that in a comment video very soon.

But when you look around this Dave say you just see fish everywhere like we're on the wall now and the wall is just dropping to death and this Barracuda hanging in there there's also goldfish, there's schools them and blue chrome is just cruising past, and what I loved about this dive site was how to run out of Jackson's bite where, as Ragnar said in the dive briefing, it's flapped sand round about 40 feet.

12 meters and it hits the wall where it drops time and you can see.

Beth is in a happy place, smiling Dancing Away.

On this side of the dive site, you can just see schools and schools of fish.

I love this big sand patch part of The Mixing Bowl, where you had horse eye Jacks cruising right and I looked around and spotted eagle race cruising past.

There was just so much life in the sand patch.

We actually had three Eagle Rays in total, which was just awesome, they're, so Splendid to see So Graceful in the water and, as we make our way out of Jackson's fight towards the bloody Bay wall, where the mirroring was restarted, the dive we come across the school Masters again, but you just look around the corner and Luke was coming up the wall, a hawksville sea turtle.

This is what is spectacular about this day.

Everyone commented little Caiman or even a camera.

Brac come across for the day, one that I've always came in as we did you're just surrounded by incredible marine life.

There's a reason why Jacques Cousteau said this as one of his favorite type States, and this is why you can see marine life everywhere: biomass diversity of marine life, just everything you could imagine for a dive site and even when you're going with the sand patches and the coral bombers Coral patches as well, you just are just in awe of everything and you can see.

There's our Zoo smiling give me a little wave and we all set the pleasure for the few days to be joined by Cayman Cassie check her Instagram of tiger Instagram handle here she's an awesome, diver lives in the Cayman Islands and showcasing the amazing underwater round of the Cayman Islands.

So definitely check that out, as always guys.

Thank you.

So much I hope you enjoyed coming out.

Exploring the beautiful bloody Bay wall and the mixing bowl.

That I say.
