Belize Blue Hole 

Doug and Julie swimming around the stalagmites of the deep Blue Hole cave.

Our max depth was 135ft. Here is a zoom of Doug's gauge...130ft...

Doug kick'in it in the deep hoping for a little nitrogen narcosis.

Horse-eye jacks hanging out in the deep

We saw two 9 ft. reef sharks swim below.

Big fat grouper fish following us like dogs.

The sandy slope entering the 480 ft. blue hole. That is not grass on the slope, they are tiny eels poking out of the sand.

Belize Actun Tunichil Miknal Cave 
Back in the states for 2 days....will try to edit and post pics from the 600+ taken...

After 45 min jungle hike, 750 meters of swiming, climbing, ladder.... we see the skeleton of sacraficed 21yr old Maya women.

Cave is home to many bats.

All groups must where socks to preserve the activly forming cave formations that you walk on.

These pots contained offerings to the gods. They were broken and arranged by Maya priest. The pots sit as they were place aprox 900AD.
