The last time I went snorkeling I had a very bizarre panic attack. I've
never had that experience before. I suspect it was a combination of
the tightness of the diving mask, which was somewhat claustrophobic, and
the immensity of the reef, which made me feel like I was falling into a
bottomless pit. I got past all of this and had a great time--but I can
safely say I'm very glad that I didn't get caught in this! A vortex of tuna while I was having my freak out would have sent me over the edge!
I gotta admit that the tuna tornado is very impressive and beautiful. I may have been able to power through it after a bit. I suspect I would be more worried that some alpha predator might be lurking around thinking that the buffet just opened...
