- Finally got to visit this world-famous blue hole and it was great! Got the nerve to cliff jump and it was so much fun.
Visibility for snorkelling is better in the morning so try to visit around 10 am.Written 31 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Can't beast that beach view. The beach with is aquamarine waters and the amazing flats at the end must make this one of the worlds best locations if you are into the beach scene. Us fisherman aren't but a welcome stop for a beer or cocktail at the bar with maybe some nice conch fritters too. Service was also a lot friendlier than last time we were there in 2018. It was very busy this time we were there with the many american tourists.Written 10 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Long Island is a special place with beautiful, uncrowded beaches and the loveliest local culture I've ever experienced. The local music scene is really fun and the guides and restaurateurs all were so friendly and solicitous. My favorite person there is a guide, Delbert Smith, who took us diving and was awesome. Be sure to take lots of cash to the island since a lot of businesses don't take credit cards and there are only two ATMs for the whole 80-mile-long island. When they run out of cash, you're stuck. Also, in future trips I'll bring good coffee. It's hard to find and after two weeks, I was jonesing for a good cup. Those shortcomings are easy to overcome for the experience of the islands, though.Written 13 December 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A must-see when visiting Long Island! Leonard gave us a great tour. It was fascinating to experience these beautiful caves.Written 31 July 2022
- I was expecting a rough road leading to the middle of nowhere on such a "remote island" like Long Island but instead we visited a perfectly paved road leading all the way to the big parking lot, with brand new stairs, handle bars and a place that just recently, as we discovered on the spot, as just in December 2020 got a major face lift - so if you have any hesitation like we did whether it's worth it, go for it!
The vistas of the ocean are great but even better looking back at the land and the beautiful shallow waters of the cove next door - seeing peopling in the water and on the beachside there further made it even more joyful experience.
I loved the dedication "to the gentle peaceful and happy aboriginal people of the Long Island, the Lucayans and to the arrival to CC" - well said, truly well said!
You will definitely see the Dean's Blue Hole while in Long Island, you will stop at Cape Santa Maria Beach and this is the third must stop while in Long Island - the trinity! :)Written 18 June 2021
- Just when you think the water can't get any bluer....WoW! We anchored here for three nights it is desolate so you need to love the outdoors. There are literally hundreds of reefs to snorkel or dive. We saw squid, dolphin, stingrays plus many other beautiful creatures. There were also hundreds of birds. A Beautiful relaxing place to visit even if you only have one day.....Go!Written 26 August 2019
- I'm so glad that the museum has reopened after the hurricane. The admission price was very inexpensive. They did a really nice job with it, though it was a bit small. I don't know how much was lost or damaged during the storm though. What they did have was really interesting and left me wanting to know more. I am hoping that with time and more donations they will be able to accumulate additional artifacts. It really is beautifully done.Written 23 February 2020
- We had Robbie Carson pick us up by boat outside our room at crooked lodge. The cave is only accessible by boat and the ride was only ten minutes. The entrance to the cave is difficult to find so you need a guide. We have been to several caves in the Bahamas but this one is by far the largest and most beautiful. We explored for quite awhile and told that the cave is over three miles. The rooms are large and we did not have to crawl around during the exploring which my wife enjoyed. It's a must do if you visit crooked island.Written 24 December 2016
- Captain Yan and April are amazing tour guides and fisherman. We got to see a lot of wildlife and caught a nice sampling of fish. They cleaned and prepared what we caught. We brought it back to our hotel . They cooked it and we had it for dinner. The whole day was spectacular!Written 17 November 2022
- It was such a great experience with Teresa and Charles. Both were so kind and they took so much time to show and explain every to us!
We can only recommend a tour with them!Written 5 December 2021
- We swam with pigs, snorkeled, and ate lunch in a gorgeous place where our family and guides were the only humans around. The guides were great and the experience was magical. Very worth the moneyWritten 16 November 2022
- Not only can captain Marvin put you on the fish but, he educates you on the process every step of the way. He shared so many amazing facts, points, and interesting tidbits about the fish, the ocean, and the Bahamas.
Make sure you try spearfishing. First time I had the opportunity and it was an absolute blast. Speared several snapper and a trigger fish.
If you catch a blackfin tuna like we did, make sure to have him prepare it sashimi style as soon as you get back to the dock. The pepper dipping sauce was absolutely amazing.Written 11 June 2022
- My brothers and I recently did a trip to Deadmans Cay for a free diving/spearfishing trip. Luke Maillis was referred to us by several other experienced divers. All of us have different levels of experience from, no experience, to some. Luke Maillis and his team are able to take a tricky activity and make it a success for all levels. Each one of us where able to be successful spearfishing and ended up pushing ourselves with the help of the patience and expertise of Luke. Safety is highest priority for Luke and his team and at all times we were trained in the proper way to do everything. I can't wait to bring the rest of my family including young children to learn from Luke, he is a master in his craft and very passionate about sharing it with anyone who is willing to learn. A truly unique and special combination, one that no one should miss no matter what skill, comfort level in the water.Written 21 November 2019
- During my visit, I was granted the experience of going on a full day boat trip and that included snorkeling and spear fishing. It was a breathtaking experience. The crystal clear water combined with the clear sunny skies and a very hospitable captain made the day even better than it already was. The captain made sure that everything and everyone was fine so we didn’t have any problems. She took us to a great spot, did some snorkeling, got some dinner, and even saw a few sharks. The hospitality was great and I can’t wait to do it again so I’ll definitely be back.Written 23 July 2020
- Spent a full day with Docky on his boat on our third day on Long Island. We aren't big on fishing, but wanted to get out on the water. We had an absolute blast. Docky asked what we were interested in doing, then delivered everything we had discussed and then some. Took us to several good snorkeling sites, had our adult kids diving in the still, clear blue Bahama water for conch and sand dollars, spent some time checking out his swimming pigs and the iguanas on Sandy Cay. After a full day of activity, we chilled on the boat while Docky and Cash prepared amazing conch salad for us to enjoy. All in all, it was a fantastic day out. Docky was knowledgeable, personable and open to trying to accommodate our requests - all with an eye on safety.Written 10 January 2022
