DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: Got in the water and were amazed by the great viz … and with it being so clear we could see a lot more. The reef was magical with reef fish all over, including some Bigeye Kingfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito, False Fusiliers and so much more! We also had a Potato Bass and right before we started to multi-level we had a Zambezi (Bull) Shark and a Guitar Shark, and then we heard Tom Burd screaming at us to look up, a pod of about 10 Dolphins passed over us. WOW WOW WOW!!!! Mid water we had 1000’s and more Shoaling Hammerhead Sharks, we also saw cute little baby Hammerhead Sharks!! 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks, 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and a Copper Shark kept us busy in between all the Hammerhead action … OOOHH MY GOODNESS, WHAT A DIVE!!!!!
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down we had a set of about 50 shoaling Hammerhead Sharks!!! Lots of little reef fish and a Potato Bass.
