DIVE 1 – Northern Pinnacle: So when Michelle runs into the dive centre … and you can’t make out a word she is saying because she is so excited … you know it has been a good dive!!!!
On the way down we encountered a Zambezi (Bull) shark. On the way to the first cave there were Ragged-tooth sharks all over. When we got to the first cave it was full … 30++ Ragged-tooth sharks inside. Mid water a HUMPBACK WHALE swam so close to Michelle, she had to move out the way … WHOOP, WHOOP!!!
On the safety stop you could hear the sound of Whales so clearly. As we looked down there were two more HUMPBACK WHALES passing underneath us. WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Not to be outdone, 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks decided to come say hi as well. WHAT A FRIGGIN UNBELIEVABLE DIVE!!!!!!!!!
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: The second dive had a lot less Ragged-tooth sharks but we were able to get much closer on this dive. At the bottom, an Electric Ray, 2 Potato Bass and some Kingfish. Mid water 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks and 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks,popping in and out. Also a Hammerhead shark seen very briefly.
Lots and lots of Humpback Whales seen breaching from the boat.
A DAY MICHELLE WILL NEVER FORGET … definitely of a dive for the top 10!
