We visited and had fun watching the local boys dive over our heads into the water. They were great and sweet. We stopped by the little candy and ice cream stand down the street and had some great pastries and ice cream.

Eleuthera is a very relaxing place. Not much to do. So we took a day to drive the island and check out the local sites. Was curious to see this Ocean hole. It is a big hole of water in the middle of a neighborhood. We jumped from multiple spots above the water and had fun. It is very deep... More

This was a nice visit, although I didn't stay long. There was a family with a good amount of kids enjoying the ocean hole and wanting to jump in the water. We all threw food to the fish and some of the fish would jump right out of the water. Be careful when going there though, as I missed the... More

Get a bag of bread and spend ten minutes feeding the fish. The Ocean Hole is surrounded by a nice park. Maybe stop and eat your picnic lunch. This is a place to stop on your way to someplace elese, not a destination.

Water is cool and clear and fish are fun to watch and swim with. Snorkel to get the best view of them feeding and be sure to jump from the surrounding rocks for the full effect. Stay a short while or for the afternoon. Picnic tables available around the perimeter.

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.
