“A special experience”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

A fascinating, beautiful area. You can snorkle here, but you need to dive to see the beauty of the place. No matter how many times you go, the experience will be different. Drawbacks are the cost and the long boat ride. Extra benefits include visiting the other cays on the reef and other dive sites. They are some of the most beautiful in Belize.

“Snorkeler, not a diver”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We are snorklers and not divers so not that interesting. But...we were at the Great Blue Hole which was so cool. Snorkeling was okay but not that exciting. Still a must do if you are going to Belize.

“Blue Hole”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Blue Hole is interesting. The dive sites around it at Half Moon Caye and Long Caye are super. Half Moon Caye is gorgeous and a great place to walk around.

“Wonders in the Caribbean, Belize.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Belize,here are places that surprise us , this may be one of them, Nice and warm Caribbean waters are wonderful, blue and the BLUE HOLE appears! view is amazing, and if you can fly worth. Unfortunately the price is a bit high but it is still wonderful.
The whole area is colorful, full of corals and who can dive wowed them see the formations found in the depth of this hole.
Perhaps there should be more operators overflying and thus reduce prices, because this view is worth it.
