DIVE 1 - BAITED SHARK DIVE: So we had about 6 Oceanic Blacktip sharks staying with us throughout the whole dive, coming really close to the divers. One Hammerhead shark came up to the divers and as we swam closer to get a closer look there was a SHOAL OF HAMMERHEADS!!!! About 40 of them!!! It was amazing!!! We also had some Rainbow Runners and Tuna.

DIVE 2 - Northern Pinnacle: On our way down we had a Zambezi (Bull) shark. The cave was packed with about 30 Ragged-tooth sharks. On the reef we had a Brindle Bass and 2 Potato Bass. Lots of beautiful reef fish. Kingfish and Tuna. Mid water we had 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and another Zambezi (Bull) shark. We could also hear Whales singing through the whole dive!

Whales and flying fish seen from the boat ... with calm seas, a perfect day of diving!!
