Sea Temp: 21 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: A big school of Dolphins on the surface before the drop site – great start!!! Dropped in on a large shoal of Bigeye Kingfish. Spotted 1 small Bull (Zambezi) shark from above. Then we saw 3 Scalloped Hammerhead sharks and had 5 groups of shoaling Hammerhead sharks throughout the dive. Encountered 6 Oceanic Blacktip sharks mid water. Also had a couple of Dusky sharks at the end of the dive.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Dropped in on a very curious Dusky shark. The reef was alive with fish on the bottom. Sighted one group of shoaling Hammerhead sharks, then stumbled across 1 Round Ribbontail Ray. Mid water, saw a massive group of Dusky sharks (+20). Also saw 2 Hammerhead sharks on the safety stop. Lots of interesting ‘jellies’ to look at. A great day of diving!!
