Fabien’s grandfather Jacques Cousteau explored the Blue Hole in 1971 on a scientific sub expedition and that was the last time anyone went down there in a submersible.

Located 46 miles off the coast of Belize, in the center of Lighthouse Reef in the Caribbean Sea, the famous Blue Hole is 407-feet deep and 1,043-feet in diameter

About 100,000 years ago, the Blue Hole was actually an above-ground network of limestone caves. Eventually, it collapsed and became an underwater sinkhole.
