During the months of January through June, the waters near the natural paradise of Contoy Island welcome the beautiful species of the Sailfish. The island’s shallow waters and richness in plankton attracts a specific type of sardine, a delicacy that sailfish prey on.

The behavior of this magnificent species and its presence in the waters of the Caribbean was discovered thanks to a deep investigation headed by Mexican diver, Alberto Friscione.

According to Friscione, the sailfish, a ferocious predator, more than feeding itself, appears as if it’s dancing on water, due to its swift movements and the use of its large bill among prey. By doing so, it creates small groups, driving them to the surface of the water, and eats them.

The spectacle is crowned when the sailfish opens its dorsal fin, known as sail, and changes drastically from an opaque tone to sparkles of silver and blue, a distraction to its prey and announcement to its species, that it’s going to attack to avoid hurting each other.
