The Blue Hole was formed during one of the ice ages. At this time it was dry and because of its limestone makeup, the limestone rich water formed stalagmites and stalactites. Some of these are nearly 30' long and nearly 8' in diameter! The Blue Hole is almost 1000' across, fringed by coral.
Turneffe has some of the most pristine diving to be found in Belize. "The Elbow", on the south end of the Turneffe Atoll, is a favorite among openwater and advanced divers.
