Blue Hole - This is a very unique dive site. The deep dive has sharks under your fins with stalagmites and stalagtights. The area around the hole in dynamite!!

- A must do dive, imagine coming to Belize and not going? Go to chuck and robbie's dive shack for tours. the dive is a collapsed cave and the huge stalactites all wonky by about 15 degrees.
