Current: very mild
Viz: 8 – 10m
Sea Temp: 22 degrees Celsius
Northern Pinnacle: The reef was full of Ragged-tooth sharks. Also saw a Potato Bass. When we got to the first cave the, it was full, full, full of Ragged-tooth sharks. Made our way along the ledge spotting more Ragged-tooth sharks. Just before the second cave we made our ascent. On the way up we had about 8 Dolphins come by … JUST CALL ME DOLPHIN GIRL (my last few dives on Protea, I have had Dolphins on scuba) … although it was our famous Suresh Naidoo that spotted them first. Midwater we had a quick sighting of an Oceanic Blacktip and then a Zambezi (Bull) shark circling underneath us for a bit. Also some Remora’s keeping us company.A very nice chilled dive, with and awesome group of divers.
