This blue hole is located about 500 miles inland from the east coast of South Andros on the west side of The Bluff. It is part of a major north-south slump fracture zone, paralleling the underwater escarpment that separates the Great Bahama Bank from the Tongue of the Ocean, a deep oceanic trench. This slump fracture extends for tens of kilometers and was formed as a result of glacio-eustatic sea level changes and gravitational stresses along the edge of the limestone banks (Palmer, 1986a & b).
