Current: strong, ‘Protea Express’
Viz: 15 – 20m
Sea Temp: 23 degrees Celsius 

DIVE 1 – Northern Pinnacles: Current calmed down a little bit today but still very strong … so we dropped and on our way down, DOLPHINS!!!! A school of about 20!!! Magical!!! So when we eventually got to the reef there was a MASSIVE Tiger Shark coming really close. There was some beautiful reef fish and mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks, 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks And a Dusky Shark!!! Also some rainbow runners, Remora and Kingfish… GREAT WAY TO START THE DAY!!!!

DIVE 2 – Baited Shark Dive: Saw a Tiger Shark from the surface while getting ready to get in but as we got in it swam away … still had an epic dive with about 10 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and 2 Dusky Sharks who stayed with us through the whole dive!! 4 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks coming up from the bottom to have a look regularly … also some Tuna almost as big as the sharks stealing some of the bait.

DIVE 3 – Northern Pinnacles: The cave was full with about 30+ Ragged Tooth Sharks just Chilling around. One Potato Bass and big shoals of Kingfish on the reef, very pretty … mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks, 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and a Dusky Shark popping in and out … Such a great day of diving!!!!
