Also known as Eastern Blue Cut, viewed from above ...

Also known as Eastern Blue Cut, viewed from above the circular area of sand that makes up the heart of this site, looks like a Blue Hole. This is one of the most pristine of all Bermuda´s reef sites. A popular request as well as a favourite of most dive staff. Located at the end of Eastern Blue Cut, where the shallow waters meet the North Atlantic. A classic multilevel site, with a maximum depth of 55 feet, but with area´s that break the surface during low tide.

Depending upon weather and sea conditions, the boat my be anchored within the ´hole´ or in the deep sandy section to the south of the main hole. A permanent mooring system was recently fitted to this site to further enhance its ´special beauty´.

Divemaster notes

PhotoGet in first!!!! This site is always very special, but by getting in first you improve your chances of seeing some of Bermuda´s less often seen residents. Eagle Rays are seen feeding in the large sandy area. They are especially shy though.

A cave marks the entrance to the hole. This cave is normally filled with fry. Within the fry, find Groupers and Trumpet Fish. Lobsters and other predator taking part in what must be something of a marine aquatic McDonalds that´s open all day. It´s not unusual to see as many as 30 Spiny Lobster during a single dive especially during rough sea conditions, the lobster leave the more exposed shallow reef and seek shelter on the isolated reef heads in the much deeper sandy section.

PhotoThe reef surrounding the hole stretches to within a few inches from the surface. The shallows are some of the more lush to be seen anywhere in the world. A photographers dream. The crystal clear waters with maximum visibility, light and colour retention make for impressive results even for novice photographers.

Overhangs provide cover for Lobsters and the plentiful Blue Angel Fish. Massive Sea Fans are all over. Look closely in the sand for Leopard Flat Worms and Trumpet Triton´s. The edges of the sand are a favourite spot for Golden Crested Sea Goddesses and other Nudibrach. During the winter month´s this is a popular hide out for some massive Tarpon, specimens in excess of 5 feet are often seen as they desperately try hide. Parrot Fish in their hundreds pass through on a daily basis.

This is another site best experienced as part of a guided group, as the boat is often moored or anchor away from the hole, it can be quiet disorientating once your in the water. Your Divemaster can normally find their way around. I´ve never been disorientated here, although I make no promises for anyone else.
