Viz: 10 – 15m
Sea Temp: 24 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: As we got in we had 4 Oceanic Blacktip sharks it was very entertaining because the Viz wasn’t so good so only when the sharks were in your face did you see them. Towards the middle of the dive we ended up with 7 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. We were having so much fun at the end of the dive we had a total of 9 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. As we thought it was all over after our amazing dive we had we saw an amazing friendly whale who just wanted to be by us and make friends came to say Hi 3 times, even came towards the boat super close and put his nose out to greet us. When we said over goodbyes his came up and lifted his tail out of the water and said goodbye …
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 6 Ragged-tooth sharks, 2 Potato Bass and a Round Ribbontail Ray. Lots of reef and gamefish all over. Mid water we had a quick glimpse of an Oceanic Blacktip shark.
DIVE 3 – Northern Pinnacle: WOW!!!!!! INSANE DIVE!!!!! In the first caves we had about 10 Ragged-tooth sharks … got to pick up a few sharks teeth, then we carried on along the reef. As we go out the cave we had a Massive TIGER SHARK cruising by. On the reef we had at least 20 Ragged-tooth sharks scattered all over and just as we started to multi-level we had a GIANT MANTA RAY come in, circle around us twice and then made its way into the blue!!!!! EPIC SIGHTING!!!!!!!!
