Barbados South Coast Horseshoe Lobster

Today, weather permitting, we will be free-diving for horseshoe lobster at “The Hole”. I don’t know the real name for the lobster we call the “horseshoe”, but the meat is so much sweeter than the normal lobster. I’ll post a photo if we are lucky, and maybe someone can tell me the true name for what some call “fat boy” lobster with no claws.

If any of our surfing readers know the location of the place on the South Coast called “The Hole”, come on out and join us. We’d love to meet you!
