The Great Blue Hole, Belize

The Great Blue Hole (Wikipedia):
The hole is circular in shape, over 300 metres (984 ft) across and 125 metres (410 ft) deep. It was formed as a limestone cave system during the last glacial period when sea levels were much lower. As the ocean began to rise again, the caves flooded, and the roof collapsed. Believed to be the world’s largest feature of its kind, the Great Blue Hole is part of the larger Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

We did a day trip out to The Great blue hole with Amigos Del Mar tour company and also stopped at Half Moon Caye and The Aquarium. The divers were not very impressed with the diving at Blue Hole, however the snorkeling was fantastic!
