VIDEO: Terrifying Dive Into the Largest Saltwater Blue Hole in the World

Dean’s Blue Hole – It’s Closer than you Think

This underwater sinkhole is the deepest known saltwater blue hole in the world. It’s surface area is roughly 100 feet wide, but at the base… it’s triple that at around 330 feet! And I’m sure you’re wondering about depth. Well, it’s over 660 feet deep! If sea monsters exist, this is where they hang out.

You’re probably assuming that this Dean’s Hole is in some exotic location across the globe. It’s actually much closer than you think.  And, it’s in the vicinity of many cruise ports. Here’s it’s exact location in Long Island, The Bahamas.

For our daredevil Ship Mates, I’m not sure that this is an option for excursions out of Nassau or Freeport. But, it’s worth a try – find a local with a boat and extra some free time. Don’t forget to take pics for our User Gallery.
