Silversides back at Devil’s Grotto

nside the caves and tunnels of Devil’s Grotto, just off the George Town coastline, lies a trove of flashing silver treasure. Eagerly anticipated every year by divers and snorkellers, the silversides – glittering bait fish that gather in giant schools – have returned.

Inside the caves and tunnels of Devil’s Grotto, just off the George Town coastline, lies a trove of flashing silver treasure. Eagerly anticipated every year by divers and snorkellers, the silversides – glittering bait fish that gather in giant schools – have returned. Tarpon, snapper and barracuda glide, on the hunt, through the huge swarms of little fish. Underwater photographer Ellen Cuylaerts was among the divers who visited the dive site over the weekend, when she captured this photo.
