So easy when staying across the street at the Nautilus. Good snorkeling can be had at any time of the day. But going at high tide is the best option because then you wont have to walk for a few hundred meters in knee high...More

Stay across the street at the Nautilus resort and walk out to the blue hole. It takes at least two hours to make a complete loop and do it near high tide on the incoming tide or else the water can get a bit murky.

This is a great place to go snorkelling. At low tide, you can start from the beach at Nautilus and walk straight out to the Blue Hole. If you look, you can even find a break in the coral where you can walk straight into...More

Protected by the outer reef, so no currents or choppy waves. The Blue Hole is great snorkeling - lovely coral, colorful fish. One of the very best snorkel sites I've ever experienced.

You don't want to miss this. I have never seen anything like it. The water is warm and the blue hole is unbelieavable

Located right off the shore, so no boat needed this hole is very deep based on it's location and inside there is a reef with many tropical fish!

We borrowed a paddle board from Pacific Treelodge where we were staying and paddled out to the Blue Hole and snorkeled the perimiter. Nice corals on the ocean side, porcupinefish... as we snorkeled clockwise around from the northern end we came across some interesting caverns...More

Very accessible for snorkeling - saw giant coral formations, tons of fish, and a stingray 5 feet across. What a very pleasant surprise a few meters from shore!

The Blue Hole is just that, a large, deep, round hole (opening) in the sand and eel grass flats, surrounded by coral. Blue Hole snorkeling is best done at high tide, but can be snorkeled anytime. There is a wooden gazebo on the grassy area...More
