Viz: 25 – 30m
Sea Temp: 23 to 26 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacles: Dropped in on beautiful pinnacles and overhangs with reef fish EVERYWHERE!!! To a point where we were completely surrounded! Had 1 very friendly Potato Bass in the beginning and carried on the see 4 others, as well as a Brindle Bass who was VERY friendly! Balls of shoaling game fish throughout the dive with Giant Hammerhead sharks swimming alongside – WOW! 1 school of over 100 Hammerhead sharks and then lovely ‘jellies’ to keep us entertained on the 5m stop. BEST DIVING CONDITIONS!!!
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacles: Dropped in on a school of 25+ Dolphins at 5m!!! GREAT START! Got to pinnacles where the fish were still EVERYWHERE! Had 1 Brindle Bass, 1 Round Ribbontail Ray, 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark and 3 Bull (Zambezi) sharks. Sighted 8+ different schools of Hammerhead sharks – WOOOOOOW!!!!! With beautiful ‘jellies’ on our safety stop. Speechless!!!
