Viz: 25 – 30m
Sea Temp: 25 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: Had Dolphins on the surface before the dive. Dropped into crystal clear water and plenty of reef and game fish! Kingfish and Tuna to name a few. Mid water we had our first group of Hammerhead sharks come through (100+) and after that, we had groups of 50-100+ Hammerhead sharks throughout the rest of the dive!!! 1 Bull (Zambezi) shark popped in at about 15m and also spotted 3 Eagle Rays. We had a Remora come and visit on the safety stop. What a breathtaking dive!!!
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Current not as strong on this one. Plenty of Tuna and lots of reef fish around the pinnacles. Spotted a Round Ribbontail Ray and had 3 schools of Hammerhead sharks throughout the dive. Also had 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark during our bottom time. Fantastic diving all round!!
