Divers in the middle of Hammerhead and Oceanic Blacktip sharks.

6 January 2013 | PROTEA BANKS

Current: medium
Viz: 25m, less on the second dive
Sea Temp: 25 degrees Celsius

DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: Dropped into crystal clear water and loads of reef fish around the pinnacles. Also saw 2 Potato Bass playing with each other a distance away. In midwater we were blessed with a huge school (100’s!!!) of Hammerhead sharks with 2 Oceanic Blacktips leading, that swam straight towards us and then around us!!! What a sight! Had interesting ‘jellies’ on our safety stop. INCREDIBLE DIVE!!!!!

DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Saw lots of reef fish, despite the drop in viz. 1 Brindle Bass. Lots of beautiful ‘jellies’ on the 5m mark.
