Barracuda are a fairly common sight almost everywhere I been diving or snorkeling. Although they are sleek, powerful swimmers that can sometimes look intimidating, they mostly hang out around reefs alone or in small groups. Sometimes they open and close their mouths showing off all their big teeth but don’t worry – this is just to help with their breathing.
They usually watch divers swim by and sometimes might follow for a bit – they’re probably just curious. They aren’t dangerous to people, but they have been known to steal fish from spear fishing hunters!
