Night snorkel at Reef’s End

Photo taken by Jennifer Craighill Tobacco Caye Marine Station Co-manager

Under a full starry night we slipped into the ocean unnoticed to the nocturnal marine animals.  Then suddenly we turned on our flashlights and all of their activities were revealed.  Octopus, moray eels, bioluminescent animals and an array of fish showed their colors clear only with our sharp flashlights.


Although we’re able to see so much during the day a night snorkel is an amazing way to view the Tobacco Caye reef.  Luckily we are still able to see some amazing things just walking around the island.  There are many pelicans and a few booby species that take over the skies.  We have also been lucky enough to see dolphins, terapin, and rays jumping out of the sea

That sounds amazing! There is something special about viewing the night life; it’s like seeing a private, secret world!
