12. Dive the Blue Holes, Belize

The Blue Hole descends over 400 feet and only experienced divers can sink into this world famous sinkhole in one awesome ocean adventure that you will never forget. Divers will descend along the wall down to 130 feet where you will find an array of limestone formations and bizarre stalactites. There are no colorful fish or coral down in these depths but you may be privy to a hammerhead shark or two that like to hang around as well as rays and barracudas. There is nothing quite like the silence that surrounds you when you are 130 feet deep, surrounded by the stalactites of the collapsed prehistoric cavern and this is a dive that should otherwise be known as one extreme ocean adventures. If you are not a diver, you can still experience the surface of the Blue Hole by snorkeling, while the experience may not be as eerie, it is certainly breathtaking and beautiful.
