DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down to the reef we had anOceanic Blacktip shark and 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. On the reef we had literally non-stop action with 1000’s and 1000’s of Hammerheads passing all around us!!!!! INSANE!!! Not sure if it was just one shoal or 1000’s of the same, but WOW!!!!! we also had 3 Eagle Rays, 2 Round Ribbontail Rays, 3 Shoaling Zambezi (Bull) sharks LOL, and a Potato Bass. Mid water we had more HAMMERHEAD SHARKS … I think we had no sharks for a total of 5 minutes … the rest of our bottom time was action packed!!!
