25 Jun Dive into a time before the last Ice Age
Descend into the Great Blue Hole of Belize and observe sharks and large fish in a habitat flooded 150,000 years ago.
The Great Marine Life
This world-class destination attracts recreational scuba divers who want to dive in crystal-clear waters and see myriad species of marine life including tropical fish and spectacular coral formations. Furthermore, you can explore the magic of ancient cave stalagmites and stalactites while floating by weightlessly.
The marine life in these areas includes nurse sharks, giant groupers, and several types of reef sharks such as the Caribbean reef shark and the Blacktip shark. Dive excursions to the Great Blue Hole are full-day trips, that usually consist of one dive in the Blue Hole and two additional dives in nearby reefs.
The Great Geology
This large underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 100 kilometres (62 mi) from the mainland of Belize City. The geology indicates that this ancient cave flooded during the last significant sea level rise 150,000 years ago.
The hole is circular in shape, over 300 metres (984 ft.) across and 125 metres (410 ft.) deep. In addition to being world’s largest natural formation of its kind, it is part of the larger Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage Site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
