Sea Temp: 22 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles – THE ARCH: Well firstly, we had a Humpback Whale on the boat ride out and then a huge school of Dolphins guide us to our drop site as we rolled in – GREAT START!!! Dropped in on a Bull (Zambezi) shark and an Oceanic Blacktip shark before making our way to the bottom. Saw over 6 different schools of Hammerhead sharks, as well as some Greater Hammerhead sharks roaming around. Over 15+ Guitar sharks at Sandshark Gully, accompanied by 2 HUGE Round Ribbontail Rays, 3 Eagle Rays and a lovely big Potato Bass – WOW! Had a couple of Oceanic Blacktip sharks pop in and out as well as one Dusky shark on the bottom. What an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime dive!!!
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Saw over 5+ different schools of Hammerhead sharks and a couple of Greater Hammerhead sharks. Also saw one Guitar shark and another two MASSIVE Eagle Rays! WOW! Also spotted some shoaling Dusky sharks (REALLY!!!) Had about 3 Oceanic Blacktip sharks pop in throughout the whole dive, and one VERY cheeky one on the safety stop.
Can’t believe the dives we’ve had today!!! Absolutely mind blowing!!!
