PROTEA BANKS … RAGGED TOOTH SHARKS ON SOUTHERNS!!!!
16 August 2015 | PROTEA BANKS
Current: mild, reverse
Viz: 9m ... lol
Sea Temp: 20 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 - BAITED SHARK DIVE: Non stop action from beginning to end. Nice baited with at least 10 Oceanic Blacktip sharks on the drum, and 1 or 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks cruising underneath us. Just before I got into the water a Humpback Whale popped up right next to the boat.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacles: As we got in an Oceanic Blacktip shark came to say Hi. About 20 Ragged-tooth sharks scattered around the reef. On the way up we had Oceanic Blacktip sharks popping in on out of the dive, for the rest of the dive. Also some shoals of Bonito around. The sound of Humpback Whales was so loud, we though we would see them at any minute ... but no not this dive ... sad face.
