TOTALLY EPIC SECOND DIVE ON PROTEA BANKS ... 100's and 100's and 100's and 100's of HAMMERHEAD SHARKS!!!!!!
10 January 2015 | PROTEA BANKS
Viz: clean coming down but only 8m at the bottom, cleaner second dive
Sea Temp: 21 degrees Celsius on the bottom, warmer mid water
DIVE 1 - Southern Pinnacles: The viz was not amazing at the bottom but clean mid water. We had a nice variety of sharks Zambezi (Bull) sharks, Oceanic Blacktip sharks and Hammerhead sharks but they a were all a little difficult to see nicely as they were in the distance with not great viz. Also 3 Round Ribbontail Rays at the bottom. And a nice variety of reef and gamefish.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacles: WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW ... the current increased on this dive which cleared up the visibility a bit. At the bottom we saw at least 6 round Ribbontail Rays. A 'baby' shark. Shoaling Yellowtail and Rainbow Runners. Also lots of other game fish and reef fish.
In mid water it was INCREDIBLE, 3 times, 100's and 100's and 100's of HAMMERHEAD SHARKS ... oh my golly what an amazing sight!!!!!!
Also lots of Plankton on both dives.
With the sea flat and the sun shinning .... all I can say is I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!
