Is the blue hole dangerous for contracting bacteria? Really want to experience it with my teens, but a little nervous after reading reviews.
It’s a river... so no different than Dunn’s or any other. Not having read the reviews I don’t know what people are claiming.
Been 5 times to blue hole in Ochi coolest best swimming there is there are many rivers to swim in around the island and in my opinion better than dunns river too many people there lol... go enjoy a dip jump rope swing into the blue hole cheers
I'm not sure that an illness can be directly blamed by the Blue Hole (unless the water has been tested and confirmed). There are lots of other ways for people to contact a virus. It wouldn't be wise to swallow the water lol, but I've been several times and have been fine. I do suffer regularly from ear infections but have never picked up anything from here.
Thanks so much everyone!
The Blue Hole water is tested twice every two weeks. Normally if it rains heavily a day or two before, the water will get brown and wouldn't advise to swim or jump in.
