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 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!

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!
