DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in and out. We also had a massive Ragged-tooth shark just chilling around and a Potato Bass in the distance. Lots of reef fish and Kingfish all over. As we started to multi-level we had a Greater Hammerhead shark come in super close, then dashing off into the distance. For the rest of the dive we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks making an appearance every few minutes for the rest of the dive.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got down to the reef ‘Snoopie’, the Tiger shark came in to say Hi. Also had an Oceanic Blacktip Shark popping in and out. 3 Ragged-tooth sharks hanging around,1 of them was very curious and wanted to hang out with us a lot more. Also1 shoal of Hammerhead sharks mid water. 2 huge Hammerhead sharks that popped in just before we got out the water.
DIVE 3 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got down we had an Oceanic Blacktip shark. Every now and then we had 2 Hammerhead sharks joining us, sometimes even 3. While we were doing our safety stop we had a Zambezi (Bull) shark below us and another 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks.
