Reef Safety

Avoid walking on the coral, and wear shoes whenever you enter the water to protect your feet. Also beware of stinging fish like the Stonefish and Scorpionfish (both stony in appearance and occasionally hard to distinguish from underwater rocks), not to mention the sometimes lethal dorsal fin of the zebra-striped Lionfish. Larger predators, such as sharks and barracudas, will generally leave you alone if you leave them alone. On sighting one, use caution and move slowly toward the coral or boat.
