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.

Blue Hole reviews
One of the best snorkling spots in the world .. we really enjoyed our selves alot , but if you can't swim u'll have to wear a life jacket which is rented there and a sea shoes is a must . more »
Great dive starting from the channel with a great narrow descend under the bridge to the reef wall and inside the blue hole. Nice 30m dive. Surface a bit crowded with snorkeling. more »
A magical space in waters that will overwhelm you and put you in awe. Go if you are into snorkelling (like me) or diving, there is no point of just visiting it off shore, cause this is what you will be seeing from outside.. I highly advise of going with a guide in water, not to lose your way. You go into water from a far point as shown in the 3rd pic, and you swim your way into the blue hole from what is commonly called the bridge. On your way you will witness the most beautiful and colourful coral formations, and you won't be able to see any floors.. to your eyes it is really deep. Be prepared for a true water adventure that you will never forget. Services such as showers aren't available, you will only find changing rooms and toilets. Enjoy the beauty of this sacred place.
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.
