This island is filled with amazing adventures & this is one of them! My children had a blast exploring the area- we found sand dollars that they will treasure for years! My children enjoyed the cool, clear water- the soft sand & that they could touch the bottom for a long distance! The blue hole is a wonder to experience!... More

The water is beautiful, and the hole is like no other. The view from above the hole is awesome. The snorkeling is good on the edge of the hole and we had a 4' barracuda swim with us in the swallow sandy bottom adjacent to the hole. Once off the main road the turns are a little tricky because of... More

You take a dirt road to an empty beach, snorkel 20 yards, and suddenly you're over a 600+ foot blue hole. It's stunning and a bit erie. If you're bold, you can climb a surrounding rock formation and jump in. Many of the locals believe there's quicksand or a whirlpool and they don't go near it---all of which isn't true,... More

Dean's is worth more than one visit if you are on Long Island for an extended period of time. We are infrequent snorkelers, and I admit it was a little un-nerving snorkeling over the edge the first time, but it's exhilirating once you get used to it. My wife wore a life jacket to ease her fears, but it wasn't... More

If you are on Long Island, do not miss Dean's Blue Hole! The beach is nice, and the water, a la Caribbean, is crystal clear. But the blue hole is obviously the showstopper. It's relatively small in circumference but 663 ft deep. Bring your snorkel gear. There are plenty of fish to check out, and it you're lucky, a group... More

My family was in Long Island in vacation and spent the day a Snorkeling at dean's blue hole. What a gorgeous place. Saw a tarpon and sea turtle as well as numerous reef fish. It drops from 2 feet deep to Over 600 ft in just a few feet. It is a must stop if you are on Long Island.

Very nice place, especially for relaxing. The depth of the water next to the blue hole is just 20-30 cm. There are also alot of colorful fish around the blue hole which you can see if you go snorkling. Swimming through the dark blue water is amazing...
