As the sun begins to set, the large fish begin to enter Hol Chan through a twenty-eight foot deep cut in the reef. They know that the shallows and coral outcroppings that exist inside the cut provide their meal for the evening. Thousands, if not millions, of small fish scurry busily as darkness overtakes them. Snuggling close to the giant coral heads, these small fish hover, precariously still, as they avoid the larger fish, which are searching for their supper. Green moray and spotted eels are sometimes seen, as are sleeping sharks and octopuses. In case you don’t know it, there are very few places on earth where you can see a sleeping shark; Hol Chan, at night, is one of them.
