    Barracuda Point Sipadan Dive Site

    Barracuda Point dive site got its name from the huge shoals of barracuda that are often found in this area. It can be an interesting experience to enter the eye of the shoal and feel thousands of fish circling around you.

    Other than the main lead (barracudas), sea squirts, nudibranchs, flat worms, sting rays, moray eels, cuttlefish, pufferfish, flounders, Green Turtles, Garden Eels and Whitetip Reef Sharks can also be found at this site. However, it will not be easy to get near the sharks because of their timid nature. Corals can also be found in the shallower waters.

    For amateur divers, it is advised not to venture too deep to the north of Barracuda Point dive site as the currents can get very strong and novices are advisable to stay close to the divemaster.
