ROATÁN, Honduras — “Welcome to Paradise! What took you so long?”

Muck. Yuck. Right? Wrong!
If you have never heard of muck diving before, it does sound completely unappealing and actually the reality of what you are doing is essentially as it sounds.

SCUBA divers from around the world recognize the iconic photos of the Blue Hole in Belize, a “bucket list” dive for experienced and novice divers alike.
The Great Blue Hole, as it is often called, is part of the Lighthouse Reef and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is recommended for advance certified and experienced divers due to the depths of the dives. Read more
