DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down we had 3 Round Ribbontail Rays. On the reef we had a fleet of Rays following us, 1 Potato Bass, 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark, shoaling Bankies, Tropicals and plenty of reef fish around. Mid water we had 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark.
DIVE 3 – Baited Shark Dive: On the dive we sat with a Potato Bass and a few Protea bream eating up all the bait and then 10 Minutes later we had 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark popping in for about 20 Minutes then just left us hanging.
DIVE 4 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down to the chilly reef we got to see 4 Potato Bass and then the exciting part came, we had the pleasure of seeing 4 Round Ribbontail Rays popping in and out between the divers. Protea was really pretty with all the reef fish. We saw lots of Job fish and Kingfish. Also had some interesting Plankton and jelly fish.
