This is great. I can't figure out whether it thought it got a cool shell house on a short sale or the biggest toy ever smile

Speaking of that octopus (which was hysterical!) what is the best place and time to spot one of these cool creatures? I ran into a few in Cozumel but after 5 trips to Belize, haven't seen one. And I mean while snorkeling, not diving. Thanks in advance, Underwater Fans!

Do a night snorkel. Takes a bit of courage but well worth it.

yep, Night snorkels and night diving at Hol Chan almost always produce an octopus sighting. Phil is right ,the first time takes a little guts, but in reality my grandmother could do it and have a blast.

Shameless promotion for my buddy. Chuck and Robbie's dive shop, I've always wanted to go myself and would go with them. http://ambergriscayediving.com/
