Barracuda

Barracuda has a ripping current most of the time, and sometimes there is down and out current. Lots of sponge and big groups of fish. In the right season, this is a good spot for eagle rays. Advanced certification is recommended to dive here.

It is a beautiful dive site but it can be a difficult dive, it should be treated as a fast drift dive. Jump in together, come out together and the captain should know the area.
