Fun feeding the fish

It was kind of a neat little place, make sure you read the info about the ocean hole. We only had some rum cake and the fish seemed to love it!

Interesting place to visit, not much to it though. I wouldn't go swimming in it, and I don't trust the ladder.

We stopped here on the way back north after a long day and drive to Lighthouse Beach. Noticed a couple of handmade signs on Queens Highway in Rock Sound that said "Ocean Hole". Decided to investigate. It's not far off the main road. Had no idea what to expect but we pulled up to see three people jumping in off... More

Very unique place to visit. The area around it is run-down a bit. There was a ladder to get out of the hole itself, but it has been broken off. There is a knotted rope that someone has put up to help with getting out of the hole. The fish are very curious and will approach you in the water.... More

Located in the southern part of the island. Located right opposite Preston Albury school. You can bring bread to feed the fish, they aren't shy at all. One of my friends jumped into the hole and he said the water felt so nice.

This is a neat spot to visit towards the southern end of the island. My wife liked seeing all the fish, and while probably not good for their diet, we fed them bits of ships and bread. I doubt we're the only ones who've done this... probably a great site for kids.

We took the Eleuthera tour from Princess and this was the "premier" stop. Our guide had bread she was selling for $1 a slice to feed the fish. A few came to the surface, including some very pale angel fish. Otherwise, we just looked at a round pond. Maybe if you went on your own and had a chance to... More

I was told by the locals, that Ocean Hole was so deep, no one was able to reach the bottom. National Geographic dove here to try and find the bottom....it is very strange, how this was formed, and as small as it looks, I'm guessing, it is extremely deep and gets bigger in diameter...but how it is fresh water is...

We went to the Ocean Hole expecting that we might do some snorkeling, as we had spoken to a local friend of ours who told us that the snorkeling was great in the Ocean Hole. (He mentioned that the fish were huge from the tourists feeding them bread.. we should have listened more carefully) We drove 1 hour from Rainbow... More
