Exciting Barracuda Encounter with Crystal Charters!
Whilst out on one of our boat charters with the lovely Fiorello family we had a very thrilling encounter with a large Barracuda! Towards the end of our snorkel stop everyone was towards the back of our boat, I looked down and spotted a huge Barracuda. Everyone was very interested and came over to look. This fish which is normally silver in colour had turned itself black as part of its camouflage against the prey around it, which means serious hunting business. It took its time and then, quick as a flash, it took a fish from the coral and sliced it in half with its razor sharp teeth. This was a real treat to see, Barracuda are super fast apex predators and can reach speeds of up to 30 mph from a standstill! You never know what you are going to encounter whilst out on a boat excursion with Crystal Charters!
