“Amazing! A must do!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I had read several reviews that dissuaded me from booking a trip to the Blue Hole on my first visit to San Pedro. On my second visit I decided that I need to experience it for myself and was glad I did. The Blue Hole was an amazing dive to 137 feet. Because of the sheer wall there was plenty to see on the way up/down. It was amazing.

The second dive at Half Moon Caye and third dive at the Aquarium were also great. I strongly recommend diving with Amigos Del Mar if you are diving from San Pedro because they have the largest boat and having a large boat makes the 2.5 hour ride out bearable. We were in 6-10 waves and a smaller boat would have made the trip miserable.

Do it!! You will not regret it.

“Belize Virgins”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We got lucky with a super day and great viability. Our dive into the blue hole we will never forget. When i got there I said " lets do this once and check it off our list" I can't wait to do it again!!!

“Nothing more than checking the block on the bucket list.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

The weather was great, but the Blue Hole itself was a bit of a disappointment. Not much to see, but it was something to check off the bucket list. The follow-up dives at Aquarium and Half Moon were fantastic, though.

I'd pass on the Blue Hole if you are expecting something really exciting.

“Turneffe island resort to blue hole”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Turneffe island resort has the best trip to the blue hole. 45 ft cabin cruiser in style. First class picnic on the beach between dives. Other operations showed up in dinky boats they drove 2hours plus from the mainland...no thanks!! Go with the best.
