This is a great place to go snorkelling. At low tide, you can start from the beach at Nautilus and walk straight out to the Blue Hole. If you look, you can even find a break in the coral where you can walk straight into...More

Protected by the outer reef, so no currents or choppy waves. The Blue Hole is great snorkeling - lovely coral, colorful fish. One of the very best snorkel sites I've ever experienced.

You don't want to miss this. I have never seen anything like it. The water is warm and the blue hole is unbelieavable

Very accessible for snorkeling - saw giant coral formations, tons of fish, and a stingray 5 feet across. What a very pleasant surprise a few meters from shore!

The Blue Hole is just that, a large, deep, round hole (opening) in the sand and eel grass flats, surrounded by coral. Blue Hole snorkeling is best done at high tide, but can be snorkeled anytime. There is a wooden gazebo on the grassy area...More

Having read some of the reviews are expectations were very low, but after Doug from the Nautilus told us about the snorkelling we donned our gear and off we went from the beach. Even at high tide the surround of the hole is only about...More

Even the locals agreed; calling this blue is misrepresentation. Even so, we had fun snorkeling and paddleboarding there.
