Dean’s Blue Hole

We were in for a treat today! Our new friends, Ren and Ashley (sv/Nila Girl), were taking Brian, Matt, Jessica, and I to Dean’s Blue Hole near Clarence Town, Long Island. Dean’s Blue Hole is the deepest known, saltwater blue hole at 663-feet deep. Not only would we visit the blue hole, but we would also learn a bit from Ren and Ashley about the sport of freediving. Ren and Ashley are both freediving instructors and Ashley is a world record holder. This is an amazing sport that takes great discipline. Check out Ren and Ashley’s website to learn more: Evolve
Dean’s Blue Hole – the platform you see in the center of the hole is where divers train and compete.

What a fabulous day! Thanks to Ren and Ashley for giving us this opportunity. On the drive home we stopped at Forest II for the absolutely best conch burger we’ve ever eaten! Long Island just keeps getting better and better.
