Worth seeing

If you are driving by I'd encourage you to stop and see the Blue Hole. It's a small pond that goes 81 feet deep. Something I've never seen before.

We stopped on Memorial Day in the late afternoon. We knew we didn't want to swim so told the park personnel we just wanted to see it and not swim, so they let us in and we were there about 5 minutes (at their request). There were some divers in the pool down below and a few swimmer's were jumping... More

My boyfriend came to visit me from Dallas and I I was so eager to see him I decided to drive and meet him in Santa Rosa. I had already been here before to see Tge Blue Hole but he hasn't. It is amazing to see something you just don't expect to see in the desert. It was fun!

We stopped to watch the scuba swimmers work their way through their routine. The Blue hole looks like Windex and is the favorite pool for beginner and experienced divers from all over. A small spring that offers 3000 gallons of water per minute and is 80+ feet deep with a 61 degree average temperature. One of the locals jumped into... More

If you are passing through then this is a good place to stop for a look or a swim, unfortunately it was raining when we got there so we didn't swim. Just took some photos.

Very tempting for a swim or snorkel on a hot day. Made do with just getting our feet wet. Very interesting to watch the divers, both scuba and others.

Although we did not go swimming, if you are in Santa Rosa, do not miss the Blue Hole. Another of natures wonders!

This was a fun trip! The water clarity is outstanding and made for a very memorable dive experience. There is a building next door for divers with a warming room and locker rooms with hot showers. We stayed an extra day (Monday) so we could dive without the weekend diving crowd and were so happy we did because we were... More
