I agree with your assessment of the Blue Hole. I did it last week. The vis was terrible, and the formations were not that great.

We did it on air. On my Shearwater set to medium, I had two minutes of deco. I'm not sure what my back up VT3 showed as I just wear only in case of a failure of the Shearwater.

I certainly wouldn't do it again.

Yep, the blue hole does kind of eat 2/3 of a day of diving on the Aggressor itineraries. This was one of the cool parts of our recent Itza [1] stay. They have multiple boats so we were able to get 3-4 dives around Lighthouse on the day the new-to-Belize divers went to the Blue hole.

On the BA IV, we went there early in the morning, 1st boat there. Did the Half Moon Caye land tour and still got in 2 afternoon dives and a night dive. If I ever went again, would not vote for the Blue Hole. Once was enough, or I would not be able to say this :)
