BIG WAVES, FLAT SEA, SUN SHINE AND SHARKS ON PROTEA BANKS!!!
27 December 2018 | PROTEA BANKS
Viz: 10m bottom, 8m top (Plankton)
Sea Temp: 21 - 23 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 - Southern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef it was full of colourful fish and 1 Round Ribbontail Ray. As we started making our way up a Hammerhead shark came in and left again BUT it came in again just to have another look. Mid water we had another Hammerhead shark that just came in very quickly.
DIVE 2 - Baited Shark Dive: Baited for quite a while and took some work but after a few minutes we had full blown out of this world dive. We had 3 Zambezi (Bull) sharks and 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out. We also had at least 4 Dusky sharks circling around keeping their distance.
DIVE 3 - Southern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 1 Greater Hammerhead shark and a Oceanic Blacktip shark. Lots of reef fishes and MASSIVE schools of Bigeye Kingfish. Mid water we had a shoal of at least 50 - 100 Hammerhead sharks.
