WOW, WHAT A DAY, ACTION FROM BEGINNING TO END (a 72 minute dive)! Thanks to my special dive buddy – SURESH – another ONCE IN A LIFETIME!

Current: mild
Viz: 30m+
Sea Temp: 22 degrees Celsius

Southern Pinnacles: So what happens when you drop into warm water, realize that viz is top to bottom and there is no current? … you know this is going to be an INCREDIBLE dive!!!!! So firstly the viz is endless and the reef so alive with a wide variety of fish. Then you spot a Ragged-tooth shark, which is a bit out of place on the Southern Pinnacles. Then a couple of Potato Bass pop in to say Hi … just to make sure you haven’t forgotten about them. AND then you have 12 DOLPHINS swimming towards you, you rub your eyes and think you are dreaming … but no there are 12 Dolphins now swimming, at 30m, right past you. Okay … so dive could have ended right here but is doesn’t … another Potato Bass swims right up to you and then you spot a big shoal of Kingfish surrounded by so many reef fish. Then a glimpse of a Lesser Guitar shark. On the way up are entertained by 4 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. AND then we spot a fisherman’s paradise – HUNDREDS of shoaling fish including Bigeye Kingfish, with Tropical Amberjacks popping in and out.

AND then of course there were the 5 Remora’s, that decided today was a great day to attack Kym’s hair … I must admit a few choice words were used!
