DIVE1 – Northern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 1 Zambezi ( Bull) shark, Potato Bass and plenty of reef fish. Mid water we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: On the reef we had beautiful fish action. We also had 1 Potato Bass and 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. Mid water we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks chasing a small shoal of Rainbow Runners.
DIVE 3 – Baited Shark Dive: As we got in it was a bit of a wait … but then 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks decided to come and keep us company. It was nice just having 2 of them around cause we spent quite a bit of time with them BUT then their brothers and sisters got jealous and wanted so attention to so another 8 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks joined for some action. Just below us towards the end of the dive we saw a Zambezi (Bull) Shark. It was an action packed dive on Protea today.
DIVE 4 – Baited Shark Dive: We had such an epic baited dive in the morning that we decided to do another one. As we got in there were 2 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks waiting to say HI:) Whilst we were being entertained some more came … so we had a total amount of 8 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks on our second baited shark dive. Whales were heard through most of the dive.
