The blue holes of the Bahamas are unique geological features as they are the only tidal blue holes in the world.

Blue holes are underwater caves, so called because of their coloration when viewed from above; the dark blue deep water in the ‘holes’ contrasts with the light blue shallow water surrounding them.

Dive Depth: 30-90ft

Dive Features

A school of hose-eye jacks circle around the entrance to the hole as well as blue parrotfish, only seen at this site, dart past. The bay that Angelfish blue hole is located in, is home to a school of eagle rays and turtles. 

Best Times to Dive

Outgoing tide. The currents are very strong so extreme caution and correct tide timing is needed.

Best Access to Dive Spot

By boat.
