Dive Bahamas’ famous caves
Diving down into a huge vertical cave known as a Blue Hole is an experience that will be carved in your memory forever when you dive The Bahamas; we’re lucky enough to have some of the best. The spectacular Blue Holes of The Bahamas are world famous, with those off Andros and Grand Bahama being the most well known. Exploring the cathedral-like proportions of these Bahamas diving sites will give you something similar to a religious experience!
A brief history of holes
In prehistoric times, when sea levels were much lower, rainwater eroded extensive cave systems through the soft limestone base of The Bahamas. Diving enthusiasts can be thankful that when sea levels rose, these caves flooded, complete with their spectacular displays of stalagmites and stalactites. Where their massive ceilings collapsed, Blue Holes were created.
Bahamas diving - the world’s deepest
Seen from the air, these caves show up as dark blue circular holes, contrasting with the lighter blue water of the surrounding shallows. They’re one of the most distinctive features of the Bahamas; diving down within them they’re even more impressive. Dean's Blue Hole on Long Island is the world's deepest at 663ft deep and 250ft wide. We tell everyone not to miss Dean’s!
