We visited a blue hole on land (as part of a birding tour) and snorkeled above another in the ocean (as others went scuba diving into the hole and around some of its underwater caves and caverns). Do it!

We rode bicycles & walked from our lodge to 2 Blue Holes - Captain Bill's and Rainbow. Captain Bill's was large enough to get a good swim all the way across and back, and there is a platform to jump from (but you need to detach & move the raft below it first). Rainbow Blue Hole was a little more... More

After all the years of traveling to South Andros, this was my very first time visiting this blue hole. It was a little hard getting to because of the sharp limestone terrain but once you're there, nothing else matters. And, there's actually some history behind it. Back in 1929 a vessel sank in it. As the story goes, the party... More

Superb fun to run and take a cannon ball jump into the blue hole! Definitely a memorable experience :)

We swam in the land-based blue holes, and snorkeled over the many blue holes that were out in the reefs.

Blue Holes are a geological oddity and a must-visit! It's like lake water when you jump in! We were on a half-day island tour and only jumped (about 20 feet?) twice. I'm sure it's a great place to hang out and snorkel. Very cool!

Rainbow Hole is a nice walk into the jungle, tough to swim at. But if you like geocaching there is a spot there. Capt Bills was awesome to jump in and swim in! Highly recommend it!

We have been to many blue holes. Many are difficult to get to and once you're in, very difficult to get out. Captain Bill's in central Andros just north of Fresh Creek is easily accessible. two mile dirt road. A place to park. Then a short boardwalk to a platform to jump off of. And stairs to be able to...

Breath taking and so picturesque! Another of nature's great wonders. Make sure to have good walking shoes. The lime stone terrain is treacherous but worth it!
