425. School of barracudas
It was our last dive at Sipadan. My girlfriend and I stayed rather shallow to take some pictures while the rest of the group went deeper in pursuit of some barracudas. The current was heavy in some places, but we could handle it by going to another depth, where the current was going the other way!
    At the end of the dive, the divemaster signalled to us. Around a corner, there was suddenly a large school of barracudas. It was like a wall in front of us, stretching into to the blue as far as one could see in all directions. Magnificent! It became the subject of the day among the rest of the divers on the island. It was a rare event that such a large school was spotted.
