Viz: 10 – 15 m
Sea Temp: 20 degrees Celsius bottom, 25 degrees Celsius top.
DIVE 1 – Baited Shark Dive: For the first 20 minutes of the dive we had our favorite “Halffin” the Zambezi (Bull) shark stay with us … he was the only one around for a while but we really didn’t mind as he came in super close and just wow’d us with his gracefulness. In total we had 6 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. We also had some Greater Hammerhead sharks passing by in the distance. LOTS AND LOTS OF FISH AROUND including Rainbow Runners, Bigeye Kingfish and Cape Yellowtail.
DIVE 2 – Southern Pinnacle: On the reef we had lots of reef and gamefish all over with massive schools of Bigeye Kingfish. Mid water is where the action happened with “Halffin” and an Oceanic Blacktip shark staying with us right up until we got out the water!!
