It was a long & rough motor out from Caye Caulker to the Blue Hole and there were quite a few seasickness casualties. Luckily I had taken a tablet and felt fine!

The Blue Hole is an enormous, deep blue envelopes you as you parachute down. At around 35m, we saw an overhang with ENORMOUS stalactites hanging down, some with girths like oak trees! It just made my mind boggle thinking about how old they were.

I saw two large Caribbean reef sharks swimming ahead of the group, about 6-8 feet long before they disappeared into the shadows.

A slow, angled ascent up although I still had 2/3 tank of air left.

Amazing dive!
