Swim with the fishes! This amazing natural wonder was a blast for kids and parents. Don't forget to bring bread.

This site is relatively easy to get to as it is in the town., and marked !! A brief stop there will allow you to see the 'cistern' formation in the ancient coral. Easy to watch fish from the viewing deck. I believe that people swim in there, so snorkeling may be an option.

Been coming to Eleuthera for 15 years and this was our first visit to Ocean Hole, glad I've seen it, but won't bother coming back. We visit Eleuthera for the world class beaches and the quiet tranquility of the island, I'm sure if I brought my grandchildren here to feed the fish, they would be thrilled, good place for kids...

When you visit, make sure to take snacks for feeding the fish, which include, Blue Tang, French Angel Fish, Snapper and more. The Ocean Hole has an interesting story to it

Maybe we oversold this experience by our cruise ship and our guide. The hole is bottomless (well 600 feet deep actually) but nothing seems to happen. It is very serene. This is a child near the hole, selling slices of bread so we could feed the fish - wow! We saw some fish grab the bread, but could not see... More

Beautiful round lake-like area. Good for a quick stop to feed the fish (bring some bread) and admire the clear water. The "hole" is about 600 ft deep and is fed by underwater tunnels going out to the sea. Interesting area, very pretty.

Nice little "park" just on the outskirts of Rock Sound. The "hole" is actually ocean-fed through underground channels. The park is clean and well maintained. There is a walkway down to the waters edge where you will see the fish come up expecting to be fed. Be sure to take some bread to feed them. The locals use this water... More
