They call this the mixing bowl because it is teaming with life, and boy is it. Very pretty dive site. My favorite of our week of diving.

We were able to dive the "Mixing Bowl" twice. There is a lot to see and the sting rays sleeping in the same were amazing. At one point we saw 3 sleeping in a row.

Great dive! We came at this dive from two different angles! I could've spent hours there. Such an amazing dive with schools of fish and huge lobster.
