REALLY REALLY REALLY AMAZING DIVES ON PROTEA BANKS!!!
22 May 2015 | PROTEA BANKS
Current: strong - 'Protea Express'
Viz: 15 - 20m
Sea Temp: 23 degrees Celsius at the bottom
DIVE 1 - Northern Pinnacles: Current calmed down a little bit today but still very strong... So we dropped and on our way down, DOLPHINS!!!! A school of about 20!!! Magical!!!. So when we eventually got to the reef there was a MASSIVE Tiger Shark coming really close. There was some beautiful reef fish and mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks, 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks And a Dusky Shark!!! Also some rainbow runners, Remora and Kingfish... GREAT WAY TO START THE DAY!!!!
DIVE 2 - Baited dive: Saw a Tiger Shark from the surface while getting ready to get in but as we got in it swam away... Still had a epic dive with about 10 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and 2 Dusky Sharks who stayed with us through the whole dive!!
4 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks coming up from the bottom to have a look regularly... Also some Tuna almost as big as the sharks stealing some of the bait
DIVE 3 - Northern Pinnacles: The cave was full with about 30+ Ragged Tooth Sharks just Chilling around. One Potato Bass and big shoals of Kingfish on the reef, very pretty... mid water we had 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks, 3 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and a Dusky Shark popping in and out ... Such a great day of diving!!!!
