We also had a few Copper sharks popping in and out and a shoal of about 10 Copper sharks swam passed the drum. We also had some Yellowfin Tuna.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacle: Got to the reef and there were reef and gamefish everywhere. As we looked up the were 4 Hammerhead sharks passing right over us!! Mid water we had so many sharks coming really close to the divers. About 5 Oceanic Blacktip and 4 Copper sharks. Also one Dusky shark and a HUGE shoal of Hammerhead sharks, 100+!!!!!! WOOOHHOOO!!!! Some very interesting jellyfish and plankton. With great weather and awesome conditions out at sea, a beautiful day of diving.
