Also known as the Pacific drainpipe, the well is a rock hole that only appears to drain ocean water. According to some researchers, the Well probably started as a sea cave excavated by the waves before the roof eventually collapsed, creating openings at the bottom and top through which the ocean sprays. Probably the huge hole is only about 20 feet deep, but it still creates incredible sights. (Not for the weak of the heart, though!) The site is most spectacular at high tide, or during storms when water washes violently into the hole over the rocks and drums. During these sudden torrents, unattended site visitors run the risk of being swept right into the maelstrom. Photographers and nature lovers keep flocking to the amazing fountain, regardless of the risks, to see the aggressive waters that live up to their godly name's stormy personality. The best time to visit Thor's Well is to watch it one hour before the high tide without water and then watch the fill up of the formation.
