Blue Hole

Belize’s Blue Hole is a large underwater sinkhole off its coast, isolated near the center of Lighthouse Reef. Forged out of solid rock as caverns hundreds of thousands of years ago, it is now a chasm 410 feet deep that is filled with tiny fragments of rock and over 900 feet in diameter.

Start the day by being comfortable in a spacious boat that takes you 2 hours out to the ocean. Look out as we pass Turneffe Atolls, a remarkable coral formation in the western Caribbean. At the Blue Hole, the water is approximately 30 feet deep. Snorkel around the ream of a dark circle and you will see corals and a slope of sand that drops into the pitch black. Once in a while, you might hear your heart pound loudly in your ears as you see the resident reef sharks sashay from the shadows. 

In a class of its own, at Half Moon Caye Wall, is a gentle sandy slope that gradually leads up to a drop off bordered by a crust of reef where playful turtles swim through its hidden tunnels. Step onto the island of Half Moon Caye for lunch and take a short hike along the shoreline to Booby Bird with hermit crabs and gigantic iguanas. Plunge into the water again at The Aquarium and be in awe of God’s magnificent fish tank as you get surrounded by colorful corals and schools of curious fish checking you out. 

Come with Somos to explore one of the world-class destinations in a different way to begin your amazing day full of new experiences.
