DIVE 1 – Northern Pinnacle: On our way to the first cave we had a Ragged-tooth shark pass by. In the cave we had about 10 Ragged-tooth sharks chilling around. Got to get a few sharks teeth then carried on. On the reef we had 2 Potato Bass and lots of reef fish as well as Ragged-tooth sharks spotted all over. Mid water we had about 10 Eagle Rays pass by!!!
DIVE 2 – Baited Shark Dive: So nice to be in the water again, gills were getting very dry. Didn’t have to wait to long and 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks came to join for the dive, kept us on our toes. Then down from the bottom we had a Zambezi (Bull) shark come in and say Hi! Heard the sounds of Whales throughout the dive. Also had a Potato Bass join us for safety stop.
DIVE 3 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got to the reef we had a GIANT MANTA RAY!!!! WWHOOOHHO!!!! We also had 2 Potato Bass and 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. Right before we started to multi-level we had a Pod of about 10 Dolphins coming to have a look at the divers then dashed into the distance!!!! For the rest of the dive we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and a Zambezi (Bull) shark in and out.
Humpback Whales and Dolphins seen from the boat!
