Malaysia :: Sipadan : Barracuda Point

Currents can be strong here so dont go too deep or you may be swept downwards and out away from the islands. These food laden currents are what attract thousands of fish to the area including huge swirling schools of chevron barracuda. Topography starts off with a wall which merges into a ledge at around 22 meters where resting white tip sharks can be seen, also keep an eye out for grey reef sharks, eagle rays, turtles and bumphead parrotfish. The sheer numbers of fish are astounding here and drift diving is the best way to go at this absolutely awesome dive site!
