Imagine an underwater world, deep, cool and inviting. Submerge into the deep cyan waters to find another world.
Scuba diving at Blue Hole is an experience not easily forgotten. Explore a cave system that starts 40 feet below the surface. This complex cave system has been measured at nearly 600 feet of twisting passages, some large and cavernous, others with barely enough room to turn around.
You must be cave/cavern scuba certified and register at the North Ranger Station to scuba dive at Blue Hole. There is a cart at the Ranger Station available to transport your diving gear. Dives must be finished one hour prior to sundown. Diving is not permitted in the other springs or the river.
