This blue hole was accessed by driving to the site. Abaco Island is underlaid with caves, and this is one of them that formed a blue hole. It looks like a small pond from the top, but once you get in, it widens below. There are stalactites and flowstone, but no fish. Technically difficult dive, as the top is freshwater and then you cross a layer into the saltwater.
