SHOALING HAMMERHEAD SHARKS AND MORE ON PROTEA BANKS ...
18 December 2014 | PROTEA BANKS
Viz: 15m+, just milky - viz dropped on the second dive
Sea Temp: 20 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 - Southern Pinnacles: The dive started with a glimpse of a Hammerhead shark and then a Ragged-tooth shark just chilling on Southerns - really!!!! And then not much happened until mid water when we got a 100+++ Hammerhead sharks that come past and we managed to get so close to them - EPIC. After that we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping and and out, with the odd Hammerhead shark passing under us.
Lots of interesting Plankton as well to keep us entertained. EXCELLENT DIVE!!!!!!!!!!
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacles: The viz dropped a lot on the second dive. Well worth a dive with the odd Hammerhead shark and Oceanic Blacktip shark being spotted on the dive. There were a few Potato Bass hanging around The Arch. Lots of reef fish.
And lots and lots and lots and lots of Plankton.
