Dean's Blue Hole. Surrounded by a beautiful powder-beach cove, the area surrounding Dean's Hole offers a great place for a beach picnic if it's not too windy. Visitors can jump into the blue hole from various locations on the overhanging cliff above, some at 25 feet above the water. Snorkelers will see a variety of tropical fish and marine life, and Stella Maris Water Sports at Stella Maris Marina offers guided dive trips; flashlights included and necessary! While Dean's Blue hole is safe for swimming, it is recommended that all swimmers be competent or wear life jackets.
