Fisher’s Pond Ocean Hole (Cenote) is a fresh water dive site, located in Eleuthera, Bahamas. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m.


Discovered to be an ocean hole by J. Maly on April 24, 2009.

Lots of small jellyfish. Pond is 1-6 feet deep around periphery (entry is difficult due to the deep mud in this area), then drops down to 20-25 feet deep in the center. Many tiny jellyfish (half inch to two inches in size), snails clinging to rocks, and green plants. Schools of "blackfish" which have not yet been identified, which allegedly were stocked there in years past.

At 25 feet, an entrance to a large cave can be seen. This cave drops down to 40 feet, then proceeds down at a slant/overhang to 65 feet and beyond. One side of the hole is cliff/abyss/dropoff, the other side is a slanting ramp of brown, granular sand and broken brown shells that has poured down into the cave
over time The ramp must represent tens of thousands of years of snail shell remains, although the mechanism by which they are ground up is unknown since the tidal change in the pond is so small (perhaps because of its elevation above sea level?) The cave appears devoid of life, presumably because it is completely dark and will not support any of the pond's ecosystem.
