Here’s what’s at the bottom of the Great Blue Hole in Belize | Business Insider

In the winter of 2018, crews from Aquatica Submarines started their journey in the Great Blue Hole in Belize and found out that 90 meters deep shows no signs of life as there lies a thick layer of toxic hydrogen sulfide. Going further to 120 meters, they found clues to the past potentially during Ice Age like small stalactites and a light buildup of silt. The team continued to explore the bottom of the hole and found a 2-liter Coke bottle, a lost GoPro, and a resting place for two out of the three probable divers lost in The Great Blue Hole.
