Dean's Blue Hole, Clarence Town

4.6
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Long Island
The world's deepest known salt water blue hole, Dean's Blue Hole is a spectacular sight and yours to explore from land or water. A deep abyss plunges 202 m (663 ft) into the ocean's bed within a calm turquoise lagoon, a memorable spot for snorkelling and a beautiful site from the surrounding cliffs. Snow white sands surround the bay and lead to the dramatic underwater drop, its diameter starting at around 30 m (98.4 ft) and after a short descent widening to a cavernous 100 m (328 ft) mouth. Within the twinkling depths, shoals of tarpon, ray, and seahorse play as you make your way through this eerily mesmerising natural wonder.

  • We have been there for a single tank dive which was fun. There are a few fishes, but the reason why you come to this place is the huge hole and the feeling of being swallowed by it. Not the best SCUBA...  more »

  • Amazing. The blue hole has 1000s of fish to swim with with occasional sting ray and sharks.

  • One of a kind. Watch the sea bed drop away at your feet. Unmissable if you are on long island
