Close inspection reveals decorator crabs, curious yellow-head jawfish and the elusive seahorse. San Pedro Hol Chan Marine Reserve Caye Caulker Caye Caulker Blue Hole: Recreational divers can't reach the bottom depths of the world famous Blue Hole, but they can swim between the stalactites more than a hundred feet down, stark reminders that this geological formation was once above ground. Marine Reservo TURNEFFE StGeorge's Caye REEF LIGHTHOUSEO The Elbow: As currents converge with changing tides at the southern tip of the Turneffe Atoll, thousands of fish gather among deep canyons and spur and groove forma- tions.
