DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark on the safety stop. 1 Guitar shark. Reef absolutely stunning and teeming with fish. SUPER PRETTY DIVE!!!!
DIVE 2 – BAITED SHARK DIVE: 2 TIGER SHARKS one with bite marks on back down to the tail, a pack of 3 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. 1 Potato Bass flying up and down from the reef to the drum and back, 2 Green Job fish.  Bonito and Tuna darting in and out. Really a BOMB of a dive.

DIVE 3 – Southern Pinnacles: 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark, 1 small TIGER shark, a big Bull (Zambezi) shark that hung around for two minutes, but still slightly deep. A shoal of Barracuda. A big shoal of Kingfish. Reef teaming with reef fish settling down for the night. A few interesting ‘jellies’ around. A perfect late dive …!
