Dive 1 – Southern Pinnacle: On our way down to the reef we had a Turtle making his way up to the surface!! Super cute!!! On the reef we had 3 Round Ribbontail Rays, 2 Potato Bass , lots of reef fish and a Zambezi Bull Shark. Mid water we had 3 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks, a Oceanic Blacktip Shark and huge shoals of Rainbow Runners.
Dive 2 – Northern Pinnacle: Got to the first caves and picked up some leftover sharks teeth from last years Ragged Tooth Shark season. On the reef we had a Zambezi (Bull) Shark coming really close to the divers. Also 2 Round Ribbontail Rays and 3 Potato Bass. Lots of beautiful reef fish all over. Mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks and a Oceanic Blacktip Shark popping in and out keeping us busy for the rest of the dive. On our safety stop we had a TIGER SHARK for a brief second!!!!!! YAY!!! Epic way to end a great day of diving!!!!
