Sea Temp: 21 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: We saw Humpback Whales and Dolphins on the boat ride out, ended up snorkelling with the Dolphins twice before our dives began … then dropped in on Dusky sharks, Oceanic Blacktip sharks and a big Potato Bass! We saw a massive Eagle Ray. Had 10 or so Dusky and Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out of view. Saw shoaling Hammerhead sharks about 8 times. There were literally 100’s of Hammerhead sharks that completely surrounded the group multiple times!! In mid water we were visited by a school of about 25 Dolphins. A truly breathtaking dive!!
Dive 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Dropped in on a small Dusky shark. Had 6+ separate encounters with Hammerhead sharks (100’s!)!!! Lots of ‘jellies’.
The diving today absolutely blows your mind!!!!!
