“Natural wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Beautiful place to swim and snorkel. Lots of fish to see in a spot that is protected from the wind and waves on the Atlantic side of the island. Worth visiting!

“A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Very cool. Good snorkeling. We snorkeled across the hole and back. It is a little nerve racking but worth it.

“blue hole”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Interesting, especially during a free-diving competition. But it was marred by a fatality of a competitor.

“Beautiful Blue Hole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We have visited Long Island several times over the years, and almost every time we visit Dean's Blue Hole. It offers crystal clear water and and easy accessible blue hole for snorkelers and divers alike. It is not however, for the inexperienced swimmer. Caution is advised as with any other water activity. But even if you don't swim/snorkel, you can ejoy the beach and the beauty.

“Amazing Blue Hole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Blue Hole was breathtakingly beautiful! The colours of the water were mesmerizing with its aqua marine melding into the darkest of blues. Soft white sandy beach. Very quiet, almost hauntingly so.
