Dean’s Blue Hole – Bahamas
Dare to be brave, be bold, be adventurous, climb up the rocky pathway and plunge into the 663 feet depths of the second deepest blue hole in the world. The most spectacular thing about this blue hole is the beach that surrounds it. It’s enclosed on three sides by a natural rock amphitheater, and on the fourth side by a turquoise lagoon and powdery white beach.
This is also where the Vertical Blue Free Diving Competition is held every year. Competitors, film crews, and spectators travel from all around the world just to witness the male or female free diver that can dive the deepest into the blue hole.
Experts who have dived the site report that it is enclosed on three sides by a natural rock amphitheater and on the fourth side by a turquoise lagoon and powder-white beach. There is never any swell or waves inside the hole, and visibility is usually between 50-100 feet (15 – 30m). At the surface, the Blue Hole is 80 x 120 feet (25 x 35m) but opens out after 60 feet (20m) into a cavern with a diameter of at least 330 feet (100m).
