The Great Blue Hole
The Great Blue Hole in Belize
Approximately 45 miles from Ambergris Caye, the almost perfectly circular Blue Hole is more than 1,000 feet (305 meters) across and some 400 feet (123 meters) deep. The hole is the opening to what was a dry cave system during the Ice Age. When the ice melted and the sea level rose, the caves were flooded, creating what is now a magnet for intrepid divers. Today the Blue Hole is famed for its sponges, barracuda, corals, angelfish—and a school of sharks often seen patrolling the hole’s edge.
White Sands Dive Shop uses 'Papa Changa' for the Blue Hole Trip because of the professionalism of its crew and ya wana be on the largest boat in town for the open ocean crossing to the Blue Hole.
