Conveniently located in Rock Sound, this is certainly worth a visit. There are hundreds of colorful, tropical fish swirling around in the water. You can take a swim with them if you so desire. You can feed the fish but they cannot feed you (no fishing). This is said to be a bottomless hole fed by the ocean and the... More

I did not know about Ocean Holes and have now begun an exploration of these amazing features which have a treasure trove of organisms and connections to the sea.

If you are in the area, this is a great place to stop and feed the fish. So many are here, but only by the ladder. My husband and daughter snorkeled and didn't find much else beyond there. But it is a fun, interesting geological wonder for a quick stop.

It's so close to the road that you might as well stop if you see the sign. But to drive any distance would be a mistake. Interesting story. Undistinguished pond in an undistinguished place.

We went to Ocean Hole to cliff Dive. The cliffs weren't super high- probably 20-30 feet or so. The tallest one was on the far side of the hole and it took a bit of a climb to get back up to the top. The water was warm and a lot of fun to swim in. At the main entrance... More

My family really enjoyed snorkeling at Ocean Hole. After throwing bread pieces to the fish, we were convinced that the fish are quite trained to perform! We saw a variety of fish and swam over to the cave entrance, but decided against attempting to swim into it. A real experience not to be missed.

This is a must see if you are in or around Rock Sound. My son and I went snorkeling in there and his dad stayed on land and took some pictures and enjoyed seeing the fish and birds. It is large and different from other places to swim in the Bahamas as you cannot see the bottom, it is very... More

A very interesting place. We brought lunch and snacks and talked to locals about the blue hole. They told us about the many species of snappers and groupers and more.

We were just passing through Rock Sound and saw the sign for Ocean Hole. We knew very little about it but were really glad we went. Access is easy and the amount of fish you swim with is amazing. My only caution would be to those who get freaked out by depth. This joker is DEEP!! Great for an hour... More

It's a standard blue hole (round hole in the ancient coral connected to the ocean through underground channels), like many others in the Bahamas. Easy access and well signed from the main road through Rock Sound, contains some reef fish (not sure that part is natural), good for a quick in and out visit of an interesting natural geologic phenomenon.
