The Blue Hole Tour
This stunning jewel set in a ring of corals is the world’s largest sinkhole in the ocean and is believed to have originally been a large cave system on dry land when it formed millions of years ago. Many have come to dive at this location, but you can also experience an exhilarating aerial view of this wonder with the aid of a charter tour or by simply booking online with Maya Island Air.
The tour with Maya encompasses mecca scenic views of the Barrier Reef, Shark Ray Alley, Turneffe Atoll, the Ocean Freighter Wreck and the Lighthouse Reef, a historical reminder of pirates and the colonial years. Get a chance to soak up a bird’s eye view of the jewel as a co-pilot or a window sitter and watch in awe as the different shades of turquoise blue mists the eyes and turns in a deep navy.
The tour allows each passenger travelling to have a great view by touring around the sinkhole multiple times per side with a starboard over to capture a tremendous view of the majestic shades of blue made by natural formation.
With such spectacular views, one may gaze off into the beauty and misses the opportunity to capture some of the most incredible shots, who knows you might just see some sea turtles. Moreover, a camera is allowed on the tour, so get your cameras ready to shoot one of your most memorable photo!
