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.

Worth a stop if your driving through town. Not really worth going out of your way to see. Last trip here it was crowded with a missionary van full of kids and vendors. This time it was later in the day and we were the only ones around, feeding the fish and walking around the rim.

We did not bring bread to feed the fish - but you could see from the surface that there were so so many! The kids got in the water with snorkles but the water was too dark to see much.

We brought bread to feed to the fish, and we were stunned at all of the gorgeous varieties of fish that we were able to see up close as we were feeding them. It was quite a treat!

This was a great photo opportunity. All we did was throw some bread crumbs and the fish began to swarm. There was a good variety of fish and if you don't snorkel, this "pond" gives you a chance to see tropical fish.

We made a trip to see this site after the server at Mate & Jenny's recommended we go. We brought along some crackers as she suggested and spend a good while there feeding the fish and marveling over all the different colors and types of them we saw. There was, unfortunately, quite a bit of trash in and around the... More

Hidden away in the settlement of Rock Sound, South Eleuthera, this ocean hole has some local superstition attached to it. Ask one of the local residents to tell you about it. Lots of (hungry) fish visible!
