    I would do Mary's Place (why does Calvin get a "Crack" while Mary gets a "Place"??) any day in place of Calvin's Crack. There's really nothing to see at Calvin's while Mary's is alive with critters and it's a much more interesting swim-through. Thanks for sharing the video!

    Nice job at 3:45.

    I can barely get through there even without holding a camera.

    BTW, Vic... Lita got a Hole...



    I got yer Crack right here, pal, Calvin's Crack...



    ...and before you decide which is "better", this is one of the other three Cracks of Calvin:



    And here, at 3:13... notice the tiny bright glow in the bottom right? There's another Crack I'll bet you haven't been through... yet!

    The view swimming over the top of Marys Place is even better than going through IMO. One, you don't have someone behind you pushing you along, and two, the coral is some of the best on the south side.

    I had the opportunity to meet and spend a bunch of time with the namesake of "Lita's Hole" and her husband Rob on this last trip. Great people and new friends.

    The swim through is neat a time or two, but you are right, I think the area around the swim through is some of the best there is on Roatan.
