Description

Slowly forming over hundreds of years, Ben's Cavern has become one the most popular inland diving destinations on Grand Bahama. Located within the 40-acre Lucayan National Park, this inland cavern developed centuries ago when the level of the sea was much lower than it is now. Divers entering this 50-ft.-deep pool are able to explore the cave in safety without losing quick access to the cavern opening above. Navigate through the stalagmites and stalactites to cross through the halocline, a transition zone of cool fresh water to warmer salt water. Guided dives can be arranged through UNEXSO. There is a parking area near the cavern opening and a staircase that leads to a dock where divers can begin their journey.
