Comments The Blue Hole is a waste of time, but I guess, one of those been there, done that, dives. The boat rides to the best sites were very long and uncomfortable. It's best to do a liveaboard for hard core divers. The dive shop was able to accomodate our rebreathers, but the expense was substantial. Our dive guides were very good, let us do our own thing once they saw we were capable divers. We had some outstanding encounters with Eagle Rays and nurse sharks.
The resort was very nice, very new and comfortable. There is a double bed in the bedroom and a pull out couch in the living room. The kitchenettes are great with a microwave, coffee pot and all the other expected things. I brought my own peanut butter, coffee and english muffins. There are some good restaurants on the caye.
