Explore the deep at Blue Hole, rich in marine life but notorious for the dangers it poses. Not without reason, the spot has been termed "Diver's Cemetery" by many in the scuba diving community. Despite this, the hole attracts many keen divers, largely because of its easy accessibility (the sinkhole sits just offshore) and its main feature, a tunnel located 56 m (184 ft) below the surface--it leads to the open sea and presents a major challenge to experienced divers.

  • Amazing snorkeling. 140 meter deep Azure waters with a desert rocky mountain backdrop. Very scenic. Better if you can spend more time there instead of being part of a rushed tour group.
  • What can you say - you should already know it. Sometimes crowded and you need to wait in line to get to the water. Basic drinks and food to buy on site. Saved us with rental boots for a wetsuit, perhaps also other equipment. Whatever your needs, big or small, use the toilet BEFORE coming here. TRUST ME!
