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

It's an interesting place to visit, and learn about its origins. But the water wasn't so clear in the day we went there, maybe because of the weather at that time.

This is a giant hole inland from the ocean. It rises and lowers with the tides. Bring a loaf of bread and watch a aquatic show of fish as they feed. Amazing phenomena.

This ocean hole is located in Rock Sound. It is a natural salt water lake, very far from the ocean. A big blue hole of about 75 feet deep. The water there is very clear, so that you can see a lot of tropical fish, and even sometimes some turtles. It is a very good idea to bring some bread... More

If you are in the area it's worth the time to take a look they say the water has healing powers it's a nice area to take some pictures and read up on what created the hole you can walk around the hole and take a look at the different views we were there September 9 2014
