Viz: 10m bottom, 20m top
Sea Temp: 22 degrees Celsius bottom, 26 degrees Celsius top.
DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: As we got in we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks just chilling with us. As the dive went on we ended up with 5 Oceanic Blacktip sharks staying with us and 2 very shy Zambezi (Bull) sharks circling at the bottom. We also had some Rainbow Runners.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: As we started descending we were surprised by a huge pod of Dolphins playing around … AMAZING!! Just above them we had huge shoals of Bigeye Kingfish and an Oceanic Blacktip shark. Mid water we had 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark and a shoal of Hammerhead sharks, seen in the distance by some of the divers. Just before we got out we had another Oceanic Blacktip shark come in and out. Lots of interesting jelly fish and plankton.
