successors no longer operate), fortunately I had a cabin to myself. The boat Captain was Gary Bain. He and his girlfriend Barbara were the dive
masters. Gary is in one Scene near the end petting a
moray eel. He taught me some very

where the fish would be and swim ahead so I was not always getting fish tails.

the north wall (Blood bay). We made the
crossing from Cayman Brac without incident, but the
aggressor never made it to Little Cayman that

the last few days diving on the north wall and even turned down an invitation
to have Thanksgiving dinner at the Southern Cross Club because we did not want
to miss any more dives on the north side.
This video includes a nice
eagle ray shot, a couple of good turtle scenes, shots of Sting rays, grouper
and barracuda, in additional to the usual coral, sponges, and reef fish life.
