Devil's Hole Aquarium
Visitors are allowed to fish with line and bait, but no hooks. That is just as well. Tropical fish like angel fish, parrot fish and moray eels are better appreciated for their natural beauty than eaten as the catch of the day. The green Bermuda turtle, a protected species, can also be found here. Admission runs about USD5 for adults, USD3 for children ages 5-12, and USD.50 for those under five years old.
My wife and I visited Bermuda on Friday, May 10, 2010 while on a cruise. We took Bus #3 from Hamilton out to Devil's Hole and had an enjoyable time. The neighborhood is a residential area right on beautiful Harrington Sound. The aquarium is tiny, and not what we expected, as it blends in with the surrounding houses. Admission was $10 each, and we had a private tour of the place because we were the only ones there. The sea turtles were huge and amazing, ranging from 50 to 175 yrs. old. We got to feed the fish and turtles, and feel them strike a piece of fish clamped onto the end of a rope. The tour guide, Fred, was very friendly and informative. He told us of the history of the hole and why it was named Devil's hole. We took lots of pictures and video. We spent around 45min to 1hr with our guide, then ate lunch on the patio at the adjoining cafe. We had some yummy jerk chicken and brown sauce fish. We also bought a few things at the small market across the street from the cafe. We found all of the people at the Cafe and Market to be extremely friendly and helpful. It would be a fun place to return and visit again.
I came back from Bermuda just yesterday, andwent with my brother and his girlfriend, also with a group only each one of us did our own thing. We were figuring out places to see and go, and we came acropss Devil Holes Aquarium. We decided to g..we get there yeah it's small on the outside not what any of us expected at all, but we still gave it a try anyway. The man working there was a black male, who actually was very informative about the animals there, small but definaely worth the 10 bucks if you're looking to have fun and learn . If I ever go back to Bermuda I would go bacjk there! Also there's a cafe at the top of this place called Angel Wings Cafe. I was just treated with rtespect, and everyones wicked chill there. I love it
I recently travelled with the love of my life to a luxury hotel in Bermuda to propose marriage. She said yes. The morning after our engagement I thought it would be fun and romantic to rent a moped at the hotel and explore the island together. Having visited the aquarium as a child to feed the fish some 30 years ago on a family vacation to the island, I recognized the aquarium on a map of island attractions provided to us by the hotel and head straight there. Upon arriving in the morning by moped to an empty, small and enclosed aquarium parking lot at the base of Devil's Hole Hill just off of Harrington Sound Road we were immediately greeted by a local male thug who claimed to be an aquarium employee and who tried in earnest for 5 minutes to lure us into a gated area at the end of the parking lot which he repeatedly claimed was the aquarium entrance. He became aggitated and impatient at our hesitation to follow him into the gated area after much assurances we were in fact entering the aquarium. After further hesitation on our part he disappeared for a minute behind the gated area emerging to only to say "let's do this" when asked again if this was in fact the aquarium entrance. Moments later as we approached the gate to verify his claim that we were in fact at the aquarium entrance another local male thug emerged from a building and a third by moped in what appeared to be a coordinated effort to trap, abduct, rob, and/or assault us. My fiance and I retreated to our moped and sped away from what we believe was impending robbery, assault or possibly worse. Upon returning to the hotel, our recount of the incident to police and hotel employees yielded little concern other than that we were wise to trust our instincts and leave and that they were glad we were safe. Further conversations with Bermudians and hotel staff about the aquarium and the incident during the remainder of our stay reluctantly revealed that the aquarium was no longer believed to be in operation, that the area is a known gang hangout and that it is common knowledge among residents that crimes against tourists are recently on the rise on the island. Our stay and our engagement at the hotel was wonderful despite the incident at the aquarium, however our most memorable feeling is that we are lucky to have returned from the island unharmed. We will not be returning to Bermuda anytime soon.
