DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had a Pod of about 6 Dolphins staying with us for a minute or two and then swam off. OOHH MY GOODNESS!!!!. The reef had lots of beautiful reef fish all over and huge shoals of Barracuda and Bigeye Kingfish. We also had a Potato Bass, a Spotted Eagle Ray and a Oceanic Blacktip Shark. Mid water we had non stop action of Hammerhead Sharks. In total we had at least 8 sets of shoaling Hammerhead Sharks. GREAT DIVE!!!!
