Saw some posts that the bubbly pool has been filled with sediment and the experience has been degraded...any current time experience?

If by degraded you mean a major hurricane removed all of the shade trees around the perimeter and changed the look and feel, you would be correct. It is certainly a different experience than Pre Irma.

Photo from one of recent visits in 2019. My morning walk quite often ends up at the Bubbly if I am not feeling the walk UP to the spine of Jost. smile

What a rollercoaster ride rebuilding from Hurricane Irma, some days we won, some days we learned.

Last time(May 2019) I was at BP, pool seemed same however all the trees on the trail/area were struggling or dead post Irma. So not near a pretty, but as the vegetation returns, the natural beauty will be returning.

We were just there this past week and it was bubbling! Just be aware that there’s a hole in the middle that’s pretty deep.

Is the pool tide or swell dependent? Is there a way to find out if it’s worth the hike to it before setting off?

I would say it’s always worth the hike regardless of the sea state.

Looks like the Bubbly pool lost a boulder or two.

It’s never been anything close to amazing but the hike is short and fun.
