  • Great stop in Rock Sound. You can swim in the clear water. There are 2 ladders to make exit easy and you can jump right in from the lookout. If you're not up for swimming bring a couple pieces of bread and you can feed the fish. They are use to being fed and will come right to the wall when you approach. Very cool.
  • Very pretty spot! Larger than I expected with brightly colored fish visible from the walkway. I'd consider coming back for a swim or snorkeling.
  • Great place to snorkel and swim with fish. The water isn't as clear as the ocean and Exuma Sound, but it's still fun to jump into!
  • love swimming at ocean hole
  • Beautiful place you can feed the fish
