“Don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great except for the white eye sore in the middle. It's amazing how the hole connects right to the Atlantic ocean. The depth drops from 2 feet to 633 in a span of a few feet - awesome!

“One of life's great discoveries.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

To come across this Great Wonder of the World from a very discreet country road - to find no ice-cream kiosk or Rum Stand was refreshing. Just the beauty of the cove, the daring of the Deepest Blue Hole in the world and the mystery of its location. Even great joy to meet some divers practicing for the great dive competition, not the Zen Master William Trubridge who it must be a treat to watch his mastery of free diving to such depths. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Trubridge

“Worth the trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Lovely deep dark blue hole was very interesting to visit just be careful if you are not an experienced swimmer! The trash everywhere along the beach is not good. I wish the Bahamas tourist board would add more trash cans and perhaps they would be used

Lovely beach and exciting to snorkel around the world's deepest Blue Hole. Easy to find, near Clarence Town. A great place to spend an afternoon.

“Blue Hole is definitely impressive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This place was not the easiest to find but glad we did. It's definitely impressive and the natural beauty that surrounds it is breathtaking. We had 5 adults and 2 kids ( under 7.) It as a shallow beach that surrounds it for he kids to play in. We had it all to ourselves. Admittedly, It took me a while to muster up the courage to snorkel. It drops very suddenly and the water looks quite ominous. I finally took the plunged and snorkeled around and saw some cool fish. Personally, It's definitely worth a stop if you're renting a car!
