DIVE 1 - Northern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 5 Ragged-tooth sharks. Some of the divers saw a Zambezi (Bull) shark, 2 Potato Bass and lots of reef fish. Mid water we had 2 Hammerhead sharks at first and then another 3 Hammerhead sharks as we went up.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacle: On the reef we had about 5 to 10 Ragged-tooth sharks chilling around the reef. We also had a very curious Potato Bass and a big school of Bigeye Kingfish. Mid water we had a Hammerhead shark come SUPER close to some of the divers and it made an appearance again later in the dive.
DIVE 3 - Southern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 20+ Ragged-tooth sharks , 2 Potato Bass, lots of reef fish, Tropicals and 4 big Cape Yellowtails. Mid water we had lots of Protea Bream and 1 Purple Rockcod.
DIVE 4 - Northern Pinnacle: On our way down to the reef we had an Oceanic Blacktip shark follow us down. On the reef we must have had more than 20 to 30 Ragged-tooth sharks all around the cave. We also had 2 Potato Bass and some Yellowtail following us around. Mid water we had an Oceanic Blacktip shark stay with us for the rest of our dive.
Now that my friends was an amazing yet relaxing day of diving!!
