Dive Site: Sharky's Hideaway

Location: Mabouya Island, Carriacou

Description: Reef / wall

Depth: 8 - 23 metres (23 - 75 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: ***

This dive begins on a wall with a maximum depth of 23 metres. The dive becomes shallower towards the end (about 12 metres) as you reach a rock garden home to canyons, caves and overhangs. During the dive you should see lots of purple vase sponges, porcupinefish, grey angelfish, nurse sharks and occasionally giant green moray-eels as well as hundreds of copper sweepers. It is a great place for underwater photography, particularly macro shots, and is suited to both beginners and advanced divers. There can sometimes be a slight current.
