Amazing part of the Island

Love the Ocean Hole although the first time we had a bit of problem finding it. IT is most definitely worth going to. The fish are amazing and feeding them is so much fun. Some... read more

We stopped here on the way back from Lighthouse Point. There are plenty of signs to direct you there. It was ok, looks like an old rock quarry but the fish are plentiful so take some bread crumbs to bring them up.

This is our go-to place to swim on Eleuthera. No jellyfish, no waves, just really deep water and a lot of curious fish. Warning: The water is 600 feet deep, there is no slope or shore, and the sides go straight down, so anyone who is not a really good swimmer needs a life jacket in the water with them.... More

Love the Ocean Hole although the first time we had a bit of problem finding it. IT is most definitely worth going to. The fish are amazing and feeding them is so much fun. Some of the fish actually jump out of the water. I wish the board would be updated listing more of the fish that live there.

We stopped here on our way to Lighthouse Beach. The park has many picnic tables and a clean restroom. On our way back, we stopped to jump in. The friendly locals were decorating the park for their Regatta and Independence Day celebration. There were many fish - bring bread or crackers to feed them! The ladder must have just been... More

Great stop on the way to lighthouse beach. Bring old bread and feed the fish. We even snorkels with the fish to take some underwater pictures.

Great place to snorkel and feed tons of great fish. Easy access, free fun and no worries about sharks! Lots to see even if you don't get in the water.

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

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!

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
