DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: EPIC from beginning to end!!!!!! With at least 20+ Oceanic Blacktips sharks on the drum, 2 Bull (Zambezi) sharks underneath and 2 shy Dusky sharks … the dive was action packed. AND if that was not enough, there were two sets of shoaling Hammerheads sharks.
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: As we got to the bottom we were met by a friendly Potato Bass. We drifted into the second cave where we had no sharks but lots of shark teeth and a HUGE Nudibranch … lol. As we drifted along we saw 2 Ragged-tooth sharks and a Potato Bass. Mid water we had some Hammerhead sharks pop in and a small shoal of Hammerhead sharks. Nice chilled dive.
DIVE 3 – Southern Pinnacle: As we were coning down to the reef a big shoal of Hammerhead sharks came by. The reef was stunning with lots of reef and gamefish. Mid water we had another shoal of Hammerhead sharks. AND then the Oceanic Blacktip sharks came out to play and we must have had at least 5 Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out.
