One of a kind experience. It is what drew us to Long Island. However, don't plan to dive! We were lucky that we tagged along with a group that had come down from a dive shop in Stella Maris and rented a tank. Otherwise, there are no tanks in the vicinity...

Definitely a wonder of the world this natural find is spectacular! 30-40 ft cliffs rim this natural underwater sinkhole that plummets straight down 660 some feet! And it's only about 150' across the whole thing. The view from the cliffs is spectacular as well. Visit Clarence Town and Rowdy Boys right down the road and enjoy some great Bahamian food... More

As long as you are VERY careful and ONLY a good swimmer you will find this fascinating. It is a sight to behold! Otherwise stay away from the blue hole and just swim on the gorgeous beach right next to it! Or swim over to the coral reefs and watch the fish with goggles.

This was incredible to see. It's off the beaten path with only a small sign so ask for directions. The water is only a foot or two deep until you reach the edge of the hole and then it immediately plunges to over 600 feet deep. We actually saw some fish and a string ray while there.

One.of the highlights of our trip.to.Long Island Bahamas. You should be a string swimmer to snorkel here . Very thrilling to go.to edge of that deep blue hole and see it just drop off.below you. Only complaint road is.not maintained and there seems to be a lot of garbage that gets blown up on shore and no one takes any... More

Long Island has numerous shallow and deep diving locations but the famous Dean's Blue Hole is the deepest blue hole in the world reaching 663 ft or 202 meters deep! It is known for free diving competitions, scuba diving, world-class snorkelling, cliff diving, and beach lounging. The calm shallow bay next to the hole called Watermelon Beach is a relaxing...

The colors pop at this famous free diving hole. Snorkel over the depths if you're an accomplished swimmer with no fear, or stay in the shallow waters along the white sand beach. Hike to the cliff that overlooks the hole for an even more breathtaking view.
