has been written about Belize and the diving out there, which is superb
- great visibility, warm water, breathtaking views and tons of sea
life. I won’t repeat it here, but you can check
out the videos for more.
What’s not usually mentioned is that to get to the more
exotic places, you’ll need to be prepared to sit in a skiff
- usually covered, but not always and all have wooden seats (use the
life preservers as seat cushions - your bum will thank you!) - for a
couple of hours or so, to get to Lighthouse Caye or the Blue
Hole. Regardless, it’s definitely worth the trip
with great visibility, warm water, breathtaking views and tons of sea
life waiting for you. The islands (cayes) are beautiful, so
you'll even have fun on your surface interval!

Blue Hole is one of the most famous dives in the world.
It’s deep - you’ll go down to 130 ft (the
water’s dark blue at that depth), but it’s worth it
for the limited time you’re allowed down there. Don't expect to see too
much sealife at that depth; you're down there for the topography.
you descend, you’ll see the opening to a cave, complete with
large stalagmites and stalactites. From a distance (possibly
with some nitrogen narcosis influence!), it looks like a giant version
of Shrek’s mouth, thanks to the stalactites! We
swam through the stalactites before heading up to the surface to hang
out with bull sharks and black tip reef sharks as we did our safety
stop. A great dive!
