30 January 2015 | PROTEA BANKS
Current: medium to strong
Viz: clean to 25m and a bit dirty at bottom
Sea Temp: very warm to 20m, then about 20 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 - BAITED SHARK DIVE: WHOOP, WHOOP!! 1 TIGER SHARK!!! At least 3 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark. 1 Potato Bass ... lol. Loads of Tuna, Bonito, Trigger fish and more flying in and out of the dive, and stealing fish from the drum. EPIC DIVE in really clean water!
DIVE 2 - Northern Pinnacles: 1 Zambezi (Bull) shark at the bottom. Also a Ray. So many reef fish and a Potato Bass. The reef was so pretty. In mid water Jaco through the last of out fish from the baited overboard and we picked up 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks, 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark and a whole lots of Tuna, Bonito etc.
The sea was rough but the dives well worth it.
