The reef is at its most reproductive time and clouds of silversides are covering some of our favorite areas. Great spots for playing with these schools of fish and interesting photography are dive sites like Caves, Plate Reef and Blair House. Some of the local wrecks like Papa Doc, Laura and Etheridge are also good gathering places.

Together with the silversides expect to find a wide range of predatory fish, from snappers, to jacks, groupers, sometime goliath grouper, eels and barracuda. Atlantic spade fish, Bermuda chubs and sharks surround these sites as well. We always recommend to also look up, not just down.
