28 April 2014 | PROTEA BANKS
Sea Temp: 24 degrees Celsius
Northern Pinnacles: So if you were just on the boat today and not in the water you would have had an incredible sighting. A WHALE SHARK came right up to the boat to say Hi to Jaco … he said it was the same size as the boat and he almost s**t in his boardshorts … hehe. Also saw 2 Hammerhead sharks from the boat. The dive however was a completely different story. We could only boast a Round Ribbontail Ray and a Potato Bass. But with nice current and good viz it was just great to chill in the water. Also saw a Musselcracker, lots of Trigger fish, big shoal of Fusiliers and lots of other reef fish. Also a Remora hung out with us. Lots of ‘jellies’ as well.
Worth being in the water today. Looking forward to tomorrow on ‘The Banks’.
