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.

Cliff above Blue Hole is 45' above water...great for adventurous jumpers. No need to worry about hitting bottom which is 660' below surface. Many of the world free diving records were set here. Beautiful beach, snorkel to edge of blue hole or scuba to descend.

We were the only people there in Oct./Nov. It is beautiful and breathtaking as a snorkeling destination. They did offer a dive platform. It is clearly a natural wonder that is not to be missed.

Didn't make it to the bottom ;) but jumping into the water off the cliff that surrounds it is heart-pounding enough for me. Beautiful scenery and good snorkeling, too.

Amazing to think its 663 feet deep! Nice beach right there but the next beach over is full of trash. You can wade out really far on the beach of beautiful blue water

This is a great place to spend some time. Swimming over Dean's Blue Hole is an amazing experience. Kind of a strange feeling. There are areas to wade and snorkel. In fact, you can probably wade out about a quarter of a mile right next to the hole and the water is only waist de.

A visit to Dean's Blue Hole is just incredible. Do not miss the opportunity if you are on Long Island. It was our fist time to visit a blue hole and were in awe. We enjoyed snorkeling around the hole and watching divers.
