Viz: 10 – 15m
Sea Temp: 24 degrees Celsius bottom, 26 degrees Celsius top
DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: As we got into the water we had an INSANELY HUGE TIGER SHARK keeping the drum all to himself. Then the Tiger shark dashed off into the distance. After that, we had a total of 10 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and 3 Zambezi (Bull) sharks staying for the rest of the dive.
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had another CRAZY BIG TIGER SHARK swim right up to the divers to have a look at our bubbles, then carried on into the distance. Got to pick up a few sharks teeth in the first cave and as we got out we had a Black MARLIN literally swim up to us as well!!!!! Mid water we had tons of Rainbow Runners and Bonita.
DIVE 3 – Southern Pinnacle: BRAT PACK DIVE – We came down into a MASSIVE shoal of Kingfish and Jobfish. The reef was full of reef fish and scattered gamefish. At the beginning of the dive there was a TIGER SHARK spotted, then a Bull (Zambezi) shark. Mid water we were entertained by an Oceanic Blacktip shark. The ‘bestest’ part of the dive was the awesome divers!!!!!
