DIVE 1 – BAITED SHARK DIVE: Slow to start, but then full on, action packed baited shark dive today. At least 10 Zambezi (Bull) sharks, 5 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and 3 Hammerhead sharks. So many game fish as well – shoaling Bigeye Kingfish, Rainbow Runners and more. Some Tuna as well and lots of reef fish around. With some interesting Plankton in the water … like we even had time to take note, a not too shabby start to the day.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: The reef was alive with loads of reef fish and with very little current, you could really take note of the smallies … even saw some Crayfish … lol. But that was just the start. A huge shoal of Bigeye Kingfish with an Oceanic Blacktip shark chasing them. Also some shoaling Bonito. Lots of other gamefish. 2 Round Ribbontail Rays. On the bottom also 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. Mid water was also action packed with at least 3 Zambezi (Bull) sharks popping in and out. Also 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. At least 10 shoaling Hammerhead sharks. Some Rainbows Runners also came flying through and 4 Remora’s kept us entertained and lead us to the sharks.
