Named the Great Blue Hole because of its size, this ocean blue hole a.k.a. King Kong's Blue Hole is the second deepest in the Bahamas. While there are some cavernous sections to this blue hole, you don't need special equipment or lights, and the dive is not constrictive.
You'll be guided into the entrance of the blue hole at a depth of 40 feet (12 m), where you'll descend down an ancient waterfall chute. Then you'll make your way along the rim of the blue hole, passing under an enormous swim-through called the sky light room, where giant boulders have wedged themselves along the rim. Look up through the openings in the limestone rock towards the sunlight penetrating the surface far above. You're inside a breathtaking geological phenomenon.
You'll then pass into what we call the big room. From one side, you can look across the middle of the blue hole - from the other side, you can gaze down into its abyssal depths. Eventually we'll return to the waterfall, and you'll be able to see how it might have looked during the last ice age when the blue hole was on dry land. This is truly a spectacular dive!
