Bens Cave

BEN‒S CAVE: It’s not one of the better known facts about Grand Bahama, but the land areas are actually riddled with underwater caves which extend for miles. One tends to think more of Cozumel or Cancun with their extensive cenotes and cavern system when looking at caving adventures. The land area is composed of rock which resembles a huge sponge more than anything else. The caves originating on land extend well out to the ocean, and in places you can find the exits offshore. Ben’s Cave is so named for it’s discoverer, Ben Rose, who was one of the original dive staff for UNEXSO back in the 60s. Ben is still around running a bone fishing camp on the island.
