The Blue Hole


Big physical risks lure adventurers and thrill seekers to spectacular summits of mighty mountains or to daunting depths of salty seas. So too are ‘extreme’ divers drawn to a fathomless shaft in the Red Sea, which they have named The Blue Hole – a very dangerous cavity some 300 feet deep, where many a diver has drowned. ┬áThere is no official count but it is said that at least 150 scuba divers lost their lives in the last 10 years.
