Current: medium to none
Viz: 10 – 15m
Sea Temp: 20 – 25 degrees Celsius.
DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: As we got in the water we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks circling the drum. After about 5 minutes we had at least 10 Oceanic Blacktip sharks on the drum with about 5 circling in the distance. We also had a Zambezi (Bull) shark and a massive school of Kingfish passing by. Lots of Rainbow Runners around.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down to the reef we had an Oceanic Blacktip shark follow us down. On the reef we had a Guitar Shark, 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and two very frisky Potato Bass. Mid water we had about 7 Oceanic Blacktip sharks darting in and out for the rest of our dive.
DIVE 3 – Northern Pinnacle: What an awesome and chilled dive with the BRAT PACK.While we were just chilling in the first cave a TIGER shark was spotted – I think it was Snoopy. Then the divers disappeared as Peters Dolphins came in for a frolic.The rest of the dive was so relaxed with curious Potato Bass and Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out. Also a big Bull (Zambezi) shark seen below the divers. Lots of reef and gamefish today. Also 2 Musselcracker seen.
Dolphins seen from the boat.
