Bait Fish Coral Corral

Tarpon are my favorite sport fish; if you've ever hooked into one, you know what I mean.  They perform some of the most stunning acrobatics I have ever seen.  Tarpon are really smart too; if you are lucky enough to get one to take your lure, they often will immediately swim around a coral formation, snap your line, and leave you elated yet yearning for another go round.  This a is a great snorkeling video of some pretty big tarpon  circling some fry (small bait fish).  Disfruta!

Monkey Point Snorkeling

This is a great video of a vibrant BVI reef; Monkey Point off of Guana Island.  This video has a sea turtle (2:18), a trumpet fish, schools of brightly colored reef fish, but my favorite is the octopus (3:34) that changes colors to blend in  --  it's amazing to watch.  Enjoy!
