Great Blue Hole

The Great Blue Hole sits just off Lighthouse Reef in Belize and is one of the most famous marine sinkholes in the world. It is 407 feet deep, with many stalactites to be seen. This is an advanced dive due to the depth and seemingly bottomless hole. It is easy to get too deep too fast, so watch your gauges!

This dive is more about the topography than the wildlife so there are not many fish to be seen but the hole does have sharks such as grey and blacktip reef sharks.
