      The Lost Blue Hole dive site will give you the opportunity to experience a unique phenomenon that is a blue hole. A blue hole is a circular marine sinkhole, mostly caused by an air pocket deep in the earth collapsing, which can reach to extreme depths and which are easily distinguishable due to their dark blue colour in contrast to the turquoise colour of the rest of the sea around it. This site is located just 16km (10mi) east of Nassau, so it will most likely be either the first or last site liveaboards will visit.

      This blue hole is 25m (80 ft) in diameter, 90m (300 ft) deep, starts at 14m (45ft) below the surface and is bell shaped. Once inside the blue hole, everything is sheltered from external currents, so it's an easy and comfortable environment to live in for marine life and an easy place to dive in, also considering it always has exceptional visibility. This means anyone can dive here as long as you have your Open Water certification.

      What You Can See

      The rim around the top of the hole is an underwater forest of colourful and prosperous corals, sea fans and sea sponges which are home to numerous tropical fish such as Snappers, Amber Jack, Nassau Grouper and French Angel Fish. Other wildlife you will have a chance to see include southern stingrays, large sea turtles and there is also a giant Barracuda which roams around there. On a ledge a bit of a way down into the hole, a few pods of Rock Lobsters are comfortably nestled. This dive site is also known for the high abundance of sharks, with species including nurse sharks and reef sharks. They generally stay near the bottom of the hole, but often divers experience the sharks shooting past them as they go in and out of the hole. These species of sharks are very passive and sometimes quite shy so they are no threat to you.

      How To Get There

      It is easy to fly into the Bahamas as there is an international airport in the Capital city Nassau. The airport is called the Lynden Pindling International Airport and flights arrive here from many locations including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and multiple other Caribbean destinations. The liveaboards that travel around the Bahamas leave from Nassau's main port which is the Prince George wharf.
