Escape with Kendra – Adventures in Belize

Hi! My name is Kendra Guffey.

As an Assistant Instructor in scuba diving and a complete travel addict, the first questions I'm usually asked is "What adventures have you been on lately?" or "Where are you going next?" The wonderful people of Mutiny Magazine have asked me to share my travels with you and I am so excited to do just that! To start, I've gone back  and taken a trip from my travel log when I was in Belize diving the amazing Blue Hole and exploring the ancient Mayan ruins.

I am even more excited about my upcoming trips this year that I will be sharing with you. First I will be traveling to Key West, Florida for a week of diving for treasure with Mel Fisher's family on a Spanish galleon called Nuestra Senora de Atocha that went down in a hurricane in 1622 off the coast. After that, joined me as I spend a week in the Yucatan in Mexico scuba diving to depths of 140 feet in reefs. walls, wrecks, and in cenotes in the jungle! From scuba diving to mountain climbing, to hunting and fishing in Alaska - I invite you to come to escape with me!

Where is Belize ?

On the first day of diving in Belize, we got to experience snorkelling at Shark Ray Alley, a shallow site that began as a place where local fisherman would clean their catch and eventually began to attract nurse sharks and stingrays in large numbers. Fisherman reported it to the local dive shops who turned it into an extremely popular stop for tourists and it is considered to be one of the best "animal dives" in the Caribbean. Since it was a shallow area, the sun lit up the sharks and rays swimming through the green sea grass and made for great pictures!

Exploring the Blue Hole & Giant Ocean Stalactics

On our third day of diving, the plan was to head out for a full-day trip to Blue Hole, a perfectly circular limestone sinkhole located 60 miles off the mainland of Belize that measures 300 feet across and 450 feet deep.

For the first part of the dive, it looked like a lunar landscape, sand with rocks and very little life until we hit about 110 feet in our dive. We could see the giant stalactites as big as cars growing out of the overhang. Swimming through them a depth of 138 feet made us feel small and very insignificant as they loomed out of the darkness in this quiet, gravity-free adventures.
