Barracuda Deep

Probably the most advanced dive around the island. The whole wall is overgrown with hard and soft corals and the gorgonians reach a considerable size.

This is the place to see big schools of trevallys, fusiliers, surgeon fish, spanish mackerels, and unicorn fish. Eagle rays and napoleons are often seen as well as barracudas.
