Before the last ice age, a great limestone cave system formed in what is now the sea off Belize’s coast. As the ice retreated, waters rose and the cave flooded. What remains is often counted among the great wonders of the natural world: the Blue Hole.
A circular sinkhole whose depths vanish into the deepest blue, the Blue Hole’s novel ecosystem attracts everything from flounders to scuba divers.
Picture steep walls bejeweled with rich coral, sharks navigating between sunken stalactites, rays drifting in the abyss.
The Blue Hole dive requires a minimum depth of 100 feet, so intrepid divers must have an Advanced scuba certification to explore its wonders.
