School of Blackfin Barracuda

School of Blackfin Barracuda swimming towards me

Day two at Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park and we were looking for big fish like whale sharks. We didn’t find any big animals but we observed a lot of schooling fish.

Normally schooling fish either ignore me or they swim away. Today this school of Blackfin Barracuda swam towards me which was quite thrilling.
