The Great Blue Hole, or the Blue Hole of Belize, is one of the most spectacular dive sites on Earth. What makes this dive unique is that this massive blue hole can be seen from space.

This deep dive of 42 meters (135 feet) that requires a good control over buoyancy and experience with low light diving, as you'll be faced with little light in its deeper waters.

In terms of coral growth and fish life, it doesn't offer too much. The lack of light doesn't allow that many corals to grow, but you can see sea plants, algae, and feather-duster worms.

Some of the highlights of this dive site are, however, the stalactite formations at a depth of about 30-42 meters (100-140 feet). There's also a good chance of seeing bull sharks and Caribbean reef sharks. 

Suitable for Advanced divers only.

Not much marine. The stalactites were a sight to see! Very cold after you drop below 60’. Instructed to keep an eye on the wall as descending or else you’ll see nothing but darkness.

Chega a ser irônico, que o real motivo para que eu estivesse ali em Caye Caulker fosse um buraco bem profundo, escuro, frio e infestado de tubarões. Isso porque a ilha é a base mais estratégica para quem deseja encarar o desafio de mergulhar no mundialmente famoso Great Blue Hole (“buraco azul”). No centro do Lighthouse Reef, o buraco de 300 metros de diâmetro e 124 de profundidade forma uma circunferência de um azul intenso contornado por uma fina linha verde esmeralda. A imagem dessa maravilha cuja origem é incerta – cientistas especulam que pode ter sido formado quando o teto de uma enorme caverna ruiu, há muitos milhares de anos – é o maior cartão postal de Belize e também o sonho de todo mergulhador. Há aproximadamente 100 km da costa de Belize. Faz parte da extensa barreira de corais do país e foi declarado Patrimônio Mundial pela UNESCO em 1996. Muito provável que você já tenha visto uma imagem de lá rolando pela internet. Talvez tenha tido ela, inclusive, como papel de parede do seu computador.
Low viz. No marine life. Enjoy the cave columns. But not for long :)
