Named so after its neighbor, Carrot Rock, Carrot Shoal is located in open waters and consists of two pinnacles; conveniently placed between Norman Island and Peter Island, this is one of the most exciting night dive site.

You will have mooring buoys near the diving site, courtesy of the National Park trust, but you won’t have to wake up very early to catch a free one as not many people know about this hidden treasure.

It boasts with angelfish, butterflyfish , basslets, spotted and Spanish lobsters, sea turtles, nurse sharks and moray eels; these are just a few of the various marine species you will encounter while exploring the many nooks and crannies this site has.

Visibility is better in the north side and if you dive at night, the view and the abundance of marine life will leave you speechless. Carrot Shoal isn’t a very deep diving site, but one preferred for its diverse fauna, so if you want to share your unique night dive with your friends, bring along the camera.
