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.
