Nice little side trip. It's easy to find, lots of signs to direct you and a cute park surrounding it. Lots of porkfish and snapper with one trunkfish and a few angelfish and tangs. It's nice in the water but more fun to watch the feeding from above. The water is pretty clear so you can see all the fish... More

Nothing much to see, interesting but not quite impressive as it could be if they invested a little bit aroung the place. I am not sure if I visited on a low season, but I was the only one there

I came with low expectations based on the reviews I read here. We are staying in a cottage just down the street so it was one of the first places I visited. I was expecting it to be dirty and the water to be dirty. However the water was clear and the fish were abundant. The only negative would be... More

It was cool to see but if you want to snorkel and see a lot - go mid-day where the sun is bright and you can see more fish.

We all jumped in and snorkeled but the water was a bit chilly. Be careful when climbing back up the ladder. If you grab one of the rungs and have your fingers on the other side of the rung you will likely crush your fingers. Bring some bread as the fish will swarm around you if you have something to...

It's a neat sinkhole in the ground. Very pretty. The fish are fun to see and to feed. We went there with a few kids and spent time looking in and feeding the fish. It was a good time.

The Ocean Hole is a nice little park in Rock Sound. You need to look for the sign, but it has been recently remade and easier to spot from Queen's Highway. The park is a nice place to eat lunch. There are hundreds of Mangrove Snapper (quite skinny because of the scarcity of food), but you cannot fish for them.... More

This is worth a quick stop to just check it out and to read about the formation, There are some big, colorful fish near the stairway, but don't take time to snorkel. The deep water keeps visibility low and the fish scatter when you enter.
