3. Dean's Blue Hole
“An amazing natural wonder” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011
Dean's Blue Hole is a must-see when in Long Island. Just feet away from the shore the bottom falls away, from crystal clear water a few inches deep to seemingly bottomless (over 600 feet deep) deep blue. It's breathtaking and mysterious. The rest of the beach is great for swimming too. It's sheltered and calm, warm water. The water near the actual Blue Hole is very cool.

4. Shark Reef Diving
Shark Reef supplies weekly excitement as divers have the opportunity to examine some 8 to 18 Caribbean reef sharks in their natural setting. The excitement does not stop there; as divers can also take you to the Conception Island Wall, undeniably one of the most pristine diving experiences in any waters. Also dive the Blue Hole, surrounded by land and recorded as the worlds deepest.
You can go bonefishing on the immense bonefish flats on the South end of the island. Ask your hotel or guest house host about a guide.

The regatta is held annually on the Bahamas Labor Day weekend, which is usually the first weekend in June. Those in attendance come from all over the Bahamas and all over the world! There is live music, native cooking, kid’s games, and more for the entire family to enjoy! We had a fabulous time at the last regatta we attended and we look forward to doing it again.
