Sailfish

In the same grounds as where we find the Whale Sharks, we find schooling sailfish hunting for baitballs of sardines.

This phenomenon ocurrs in the wintertime, specifically between November and March, with peak season being December, January and February.

This is a higher-adrenaline experince when compared to the Whale Shark experience since the bait balls often move and it is necessary to swim along.

Sometimes we are lucky and run into the much sought after (specially by photographers) “static baitballs”, which are situations when the sailfish form a circle around the baitball and stay in the same location.
