Captain Bill's Blue Hole

This was really fun - fairly arduous bike ride to get there, but well worth checking out. Lovely fresh water, nice walking trails, interesting topography, bird watching

We took a group out to Captain Bill's blue hole for an awesome afternoon swimming and barbecuing. There was a stone hearth/grill out there to cook burgers and food. A small platform that is covered and has bench seating.

We hiked to several blue holes which were beautiful and peaceful. Found out where to go by talking to locals. Needed strong sandals for hiking, and saw a couple of non-poisonous snakes.

We visited Charlie's Blue Hole north of Fresh Creek, named after Charlie who dove into the deep caves and could not find his way out. So we were told.

Rode bikes to the Blue Hole from Small Hope Bay Lodge. Great exercise, then got to jump off the cliff into the blue hole! Just do it!
