If you like diving, it's definitely worth checking out. Colorful fish, corals, plant life, sharks, eels, rays, turtles, etc. The weather is nice in March, seas are calm if you get ocean sickness. Definitely a good day trip.

Just wanna say the blue hole is NOT at Turneffe reef, its at Lighthouse reef and advanced divers should know this. Quit confusing people! Turneffe reef is a totally different area altogether which includes the north part or the south part which has "the elbow" and Lighthouse reef is further east which includes "the blue hole" and two other dive...
