Barracuda Point, also called Punt’i Piku, is located across the Santa Barbara Beach Resort, at the mouth of Spanish Water. After a short drive across the Caracas Bay Peninsula, we arrive at the cliff where we must descend by foot and walk a short distance through shallow water to the dive site. The dive itself is also in shallow water and takes us between 70 to 90 minutes, so low air consumption is a must.
Immediately after entering the water, you will see a lot of very healthy and beautiful coral, and in and around them ton of fish and other sea creatures. Good sized barracudas call this place their home and will sometimes follow you curiously from a distance because you have entered their home turf.
Following the shoulder of the reef, you will have a nice view of the drop-offs. When the sun is shining, the sunlight will have a nice effect on the corals and sand. After a while you will hit the famous polls of Directors Bay. This construction is a perfect spot for your safety stop, as this is where the drift dive will end. From here we will head back to our Dive Center at Jan Thiel beach.
