After hearing my husband talk about it for 3 years we finally had a chance to check it out. We rented a taxi driver for the day to do an island tour and he drove us out to the Hole. Next time we plan to swim in it. A must see if you're on the island

What a geological treasure! Stunning deep blue water surrounded by shallow warm sandy water. Tropical fish swimming beneath you around the edge of the hole, so take your snorkel. If you want a thrill, climb the rocks and jump from the top of the surrounding cliff about 30+ feet or so down into the blue hole. Thrilling!

One of the best and deepest in the world!!!!! You will be awed by the site of it and you will also by awed by the remoteness of it. You are on you one for this deep hole.

The blue hole is an amazing phenominon to be sure. It is intensely blue and sadly full of garbage. We had a hard time even trying to swim or snorkel there as trash keeps hitting you in the face. What a shame.

It was a bit freaky at first but we enjoyed it. It's worth checking out. We snorkeled for a bit and saw some fish but nothing extraordinary.

We took an island tour which included the Blue Hole.. It was a interesting and nice setting but would not rate the experience as exceptional.. We would probably not spend the time and money to visit if it was not included as a tour stop.......

Only bad thing-the day we were there a large bag of trash had collected on the beach and in the water. It was all plastic and was floating in the water. Take a trash bag like we did and hopefully you won't have to use it.

We rented a car to get here, as we drove all around the island this day. No charge for parking, no charge to swim, no t-shirts for sale. I would have bought one if I could have. A thrill to experience this phenomenal site.

You don't need a mask to see the fish. They swim out to meet you. Crystal clear water. Long beach to explore. Sand dollars everywhere. Only bad mark is beach cleanliness. So much washed ashore from the Atlantic.

Great swimming hole. Amazing shades of blue. High cliff some kids were jumping off. Worth the short two track beach road drive off the highway.
