My husband and I were so looking forward to swimming in the blue hole. Nowhere in all of the reviews was it mentioned seaweed. When we arrived at the beach we were disappointed that at least 1/4 of the hole was covered in sea grass....More

Deans blue hole is a great place to snorkel and just be amazed by in general. Really, it is just a big blue hole full of water but it is so strinking. There are many fish to see around it as well.

It is 150 miles from Nassau, so it would use a lot of fuel. Cheaper to fly there and explore Long Island. Check out Bahama Dreamin for somewhere to stay.
