We visited Blue Hole as it is reknown as one of the best dive spots in the world. Blue Hole itself is impressive, however the plastic litter and damage to the coral at the entrance is disappointing. On a second visit we arrived early (7h30)...More

Our whole reason for going to Rehab was to dive the Blue Hole. Unless you are a Tech diver able to dive at 170 Feet or more it is worthless. There are so many people that go there that are not divers that the site...More

Failed to have a dive in the Bells. They are bringing hordes of snorkelers to the Blue Hole (what is the point?) and, much worse, to the Bells. About 60 to 70 snorkelers trying to dip into (the tiny) entrance of the Bells. Had to...More

I recommend to do a dive here instead of snorkeling. The reef in the shallow parts have been massacred by ignorant tourists who step on the reef with their fins. Better to dive entering from the Bells and exiting at Blue Hole.

Yes, they say it is dangerous and... there were some incidents, (near the border with Israel) indeed, but as far as I know, none of them at the sea side. In all the touristic areas there are a lot of police and military... More
