Captian Bill’s Blue Hole, is one of the largest on the island and easiest to reach. This inland blue hole is 440 feet in diameter and is one of many of a fascinating network of blue holes dotting the island of Andros. Andros Island has over 350 known inland and oceanic blue holes.
Captian Bill’s Blue Hole is located in Blue Holes National Park. This national park is clean and well kept. The park has restrooms available, nature trails, a stone grilling area, a wooden picnic bench, fresh water pump and a covered pavilion. The pavilion has a platform for jumping and there is also a stairway down to the water for easy access. Don’t think about it, just jump.
Upon arrival to Captian Bill’s Blue Hole I relaxed under the pavilion and took the gorgeous view in. Then I decided to go for a swim, this is where the on-site bathrooms came in handy. They were spacious and well kept. After changing I decided it was time to take the plunge… sike this day I didn’t jump in… at least not from the platform. I used the stairs and jumped from there, I’m usually a jumper but I psyched myself out this day. The water was really nice and refreshing.
