DIVE 1 – Northern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had about 15 Ragged-tooth sharks. In the cave we had another 3 Ragged-tooth sharks chilling around, a beautiful Round Ribbontail Ray with massive schools of Kingfish. Mid water we had an Oceanic Blacktip shark for a minute or two, then made his way into the distance.
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: 5 Ragged-tooth sharks on the reef and in the cave we didn’t see any, only Mr. Potato Bass chilling in the cave. 2 Huge Round Ribbontail Rays, 2 smaller ones followed them as well, which we got to see. They also kept with us throughout the dive. Lots of gamefish.
