DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: Started off with 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks, 2 Dusky Sharks and a Zambezi (Bull) Shark darting in and out. Then a set of about 10 shoaling Hammerheads passed by. After that the Sharks disappeared for a minute or two and the the Zambezi (Bull) Sharks started coming in one by one. In total we had 7 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks keeping us busy for the rest of the dive.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had a set of about 10 Shoaling Hammerhead Sharks pass by. WOW!!!. We also had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Shark, a Oceanic Blacktip Shark and lots of reef fish. Mid water we had 5 Hammerhead Sharks darting right towards us. As soon as they saw us they all just scared off really fast. For the rest of the dive we had 4 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks popping in and out.
A little baby Hammerhead Shark seen from the boat. WHAT A GREAT DAY OF DIVING!!!!
