DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: It was a bit quiet in the beginning, as I started to get worried 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks came from the blue and decided to join us. A little bit into the dive we had a shoal of Hammerhead sharks, 1 of the Oceanic Blacktip sharks got jealous and started chasing away the Hammerhead sharks. We had another 3 Oceanic Blacktip sharks join us. Every now and then a baby Hammerhead shark pop in and when I say pop in, it was a very close encounter. Total of 3 Baby Hammerhead sharks. Epic Epic Dive!
