Oh my gosh! I am officially a Barracuda magnet. We went snorkeling two different places today and both times I was stalked by Barracuda. Sometimes two at a time. They would start out kinda far away and each time I turned around they had gotten closer. And of course when I turned around they would play the “you don’t see me” game.
Of course I see you! You’re a freakin’ Barracuda! It’s a big ocean; get out of my personal space! But did any of them listen to me? No…..instead they followed me around for several hours. The smaller ones I would sometimes swim towards and at least make them move back a good 10 feet, but the 4-6 footers I wasn’t so brave with.
They love me so much that we even had one camp out under our boat the entire time we were there.
