Diver down

Checked off a bucket list item with a dive at the blue hole. 2.5 hour boat ride from San Pedro Belize...so not easy to get to.

I'll need to post more when I get back in the states....

Any other divers? Share some dive pics....

Nice pics, but if I saw a shark (any kind, because I can't recognize the differences), I'd be all sorts of nope.

There are plenty of dive sites off of San Pedro...all give a little something different. There is also diving off of Belize City on the main land.

Locals here are great. Everybody speaks English...many are ex-pats from the states.

Not the best diving I've done...but close to it.

Heading to my favorite dive site, Bonaire, in November

Yeah...that doesn't sound...safe. You didn't question the wisdom in swimming through chum?

I don't know, maybe they were the little sharks that don't go after humans or something, but still not going to be on the list of things I willingly do. And especially not on the list of things I'll pay for.

Believe that's the Hol Chan marine reserve...most of the sharks there are nurse sharks. Relatively harmless (until they kill everyone). My wife did the snorkel there...she's still with me.
