DIVE 1 – Southern Pinnacle: As we got into the water we had a pod of about 5 Dolphins!!!!!! As we go to the reef we had amazing Zambezi (Bull) Shark action with at least 5 of them popping in and out for our entire bottom time. We also had about 4 Round Ribbontail Rays. Lots of gamefish and a Potato Bass. Mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks right up until we got out of the water.
DIVE 2 – Northern Pinnacle: On the reef we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks and 4 Potato Bass, one of which showed a little extra interest towards the divers getting REALLY close. We also had another Round Ribbontail Ray and lots of reef fish. Mid water we had a Greater Hammerhead Shark fly by super fast and after that it was HAMMERHEADS HAMMERHEADS HAMMERHEADS!!!!!! We had a Shoal of about 50 Hammerhead Sharks passed by where a few of the smaller ones broke away from the group to get a closer look at the divers!!!!!!!! AMAZING to see them so up close and personal!!!!!!! After that we had another set of 50 Shoaling Hammerhead Sharks, an Oceanic Blacktip Shark and 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks popping in and out.
