Diver's Notes

Wonderful dive. Stated our decent in the bells a small slot in the reef table north of the Blue hole. We then exited the Bells at around 17 meters and then slowly ascended as we followed the vertical wall south towards the saddle of the blue hole. We then entered the blue hole and followed the left side of the blue hole wall towards our exit point at Blue hole.
