DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: On the reef it was so nice and chilled we had reef fish and 1 Potato Bass. On Sandshark Gully we saw 2 Guitar sharks, 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark and 1 Zambezi (Bull) shark. Mid water we had 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark and 1 Zambezi (Bull) shark. As we tried to see the Bull shark at the bottom there were 3 Humpback Whales passing us in slow motion. (We did try to swim away, but they were just too fast).
DIVE 2 – Baited Shark Dive: We started with 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks and 1 Tuna. We then had Oceanic Blacktip sharks coming in one by one up until the end where we had 10 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and 1 Bull shark. As we did our safety stop we had the visibility opening up to about 301m and in that viz we saw 1 Humpback Whale passing by the bait drum.
