Blue Holes are a geological oddity and a must-visit! It's like lake water when you jump in! We were on a half-day island tour and only jumped (about 20 feet?) twice. I'm sure it's a great place to hang out and snorkel. Very cool!

Rainbow Hole is a nice walk into the jungle, tough to swim at. But if you like geocaching there is a spot there. Capt Bills was awesome to jump in and swim in! Highly recommend it!

Gorgeous fish. You won't believe the colors! Even for novice snorkelers. Fun for all ages. The very best of nature and Northern Andros.

We have been to many blue holes. Many are difficult to get to and once you're in, very difficult to get out. Captain Bill's in central Andros just north of Fresh Creek is easily accessible. two mile dirt road. A place to park. Then a short boardwalk to a platform to jump off of. And stairs to be able to...

Breath taking and so picturesque! Another of nature's great wonders. Make sure to have good walking shoes. The lime stone terrain is treacherous but worth it!

So what is they are are NOT bottomless, Blue Holes invitingly warm waters are a delight to swim, or simply spectate as youngsters thrill to jumping in (NEVER dive headfirst into ANY unknown waters!) Don't forget, Andros still boast unexplored regions - some rumored to hide pirate treasure, or so locals say. Keep an eye out for sponge fishermen, still... More

Stargate was incredible, amazing rock formations and crystal clear water. Mars not as exciting, but still saw lots, including lionfish and barracudas.

The Blue hole in the National Park was a rough ride to get there but well worth the visit. It had restrooms available, a nature trail and a great deck to jump from to access the blue hole. There is also a stairway down to the water for easy access. Don't think about it, just jump.

This was really fun - fairly arduous bike ride to get there, but well worth checking out. Lovely fresh water, nice walking trails, interesting topography, bird watching

We took a group out to Captain Bill's blue hole for an awesome afternoon swimming and barbecuing. There was a stone hearth/grill out there to cook burgers and food. A small platform that is covered and has bench seating.
