best time of each year in the Caribbean is Spring!
May, June, July
and even August.
"costs less" during Spring, but it is the
quality of these months that many folk miss, these months
are ELECTRIC under the water and ELECTRIC above the water!
The explosion of little silver bullets, called minnows,
has occurred. These little silver bullets are the
low end of the food chain and bigger fish eat them.
There are thousands of individual shoals all over the
place scattering from here to there, swimming frantically
making sure that they are not eaten. All are
fighting for survival, looking for that hideaway
coral cove, this creates so much more Spring Action
the water the same thing is happening, all the gulls from
Argentina have flown up to the Caribbean to nest and have
their young, they return to Argentina in September.
April 7, each year marks the arrival of all the hooded
gulls. Imagine the white long tailed tropical tern,
many pelicans, countless sea-gulls all fighting for their
piece of the food chain. Flocks of pelicans flying
in order slowly prepare to dive bomb these terrified
shoals in order, rat-tat-tat-rat-tat. I have
personally counted 53 pelicans flying in formation and
then diving in formation, into the shoals of silver
bullets. Their mission complete within 4 seconds,
they repeat it again. It
is eerie during the winter when there are no birds in the
Caribbean, there seems to be no fun happening. However
the whales arrive in December. Memories of our Caribbean
sailing vacation are of Spring and during the full moon.
This is not a resort, this is adventure in paradise! You
do not have to die, to go to heaven!
has another phenomenon and that is the coral
spawning on August 14/15 which happens only at night just
after dark. This is more for scuba divers, but it is
information of interest about how the coral spreads its
life form across the world. Now you have the choice
to make smarter decisions.
