it's a marine sanctuary in langkawi called Pulau Payar. they don't allow any fresh water on the island but they do allow 100 people a day to visit it and that means 100 oily greasy bodies full of sunscreen lotion and that makes a whole lot of gunk if you ask me. too much chemicals and gunk are causing it to bleach. the black tip was over 5 feet and in the last pic is a huge old barracuda chasing a 5 foot or more black tip.
it was sleeping under the platform and i took a pic, the flash went off and it started to move and i totally froze in fear. din't know whether to swim away or just stay put.i thought i don't wanna be lunch and so i froze. not sure whether that was stupid but anyhow he swam away.
