DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: Started off slow with an Oceanic Blacktip Shark and a Zambezi (Bull) Shark. After a few minutes we had much more shark action with a total of 10 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks darting in and out.
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacles: WOW! So nice to be in the water again. Coming down today we had 2 massive Bull (Zambezi) sharks circling around us. Then we started seeing layers of Ragged-tooth sharks. The first cave was overflowing with Ragged-tooth sharks (more than 50) … it was EPIC … we also manged to find a few teeth. ALSO SAW A PAPERFISH AND 2 NUDIBRANCHS … LOL. A couple of Potato Bass milling around. Lots of gamefish. Mid water we had some Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out. REALLY, REALLY, REALLY nice and relaxing dive … woooohoooo!!!!
Humpback Whales seen breaching from the boat. We also had a POD OF DOLPHINS!!!
