From deep inside Giant Cave, Caye Caulker

This underwater cave system is thought to be one of the largest if not THE largest of its kind in the world. These are some of the first photos ever taken of the cave.


During the ice ages this cave and others in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Florida were so far out of the water for so long that these speleothems were able to form drop by drop. In Florida at Warm Mineral Spring and in the Great Blue Hole of Belize there are giant stalactites still hanging there that formed at 150 feet and deeper. In this photo these speleothems--pillars, stalactites and stalagmites--are at 85 feet and the water is salty. Most are much smaller than the deeper giant cave formations.
