Owner description: Key deer, alligators and fish gather at this watering hole, formerly a limestone quarry, where fresh water is layered over salt water.

Rather than making this a quick stop, sit for a bit in the peace and quiet. Watch exotic birds fly in and out, key deer ramble through, and you might even see the local gators.

Went to Blue Hole in search of Key Deer did see 2 crocodiles but no deer at blue Hole until we got back to the car! Right behind us was a female deer unfortunately it wasn't afraid of us and walked right up to us☹️I'm assuming it had been previously fed by someone beautiful animal but PLEASE don't feed them they need to remain wild! Great visit saw 3 more on our way out! Mornings and dusk are the best times for viewing

This was a neat little pond. We didn’t see any alligators but, after three years going to The Keys I saw three Key deer. It’s worth the short drive.

Part of the trail is still closed here due to the damage from the hurricane. We did get to see the alligator swimming around though. The water was pretty clear. There were Key deer across the road as well. Got good photos and video.
