Viz: 10 - 15m
Sea Temp: 21 - 25 degrees Celsius
DIVE 1 - BAITED SHARK DIVE: Slow to start, but then full on, action packed baited shark dive today. At least 10 Zambezi (Bull) sharks, 5 Oceanic Blacktip sharks and 3 Hammerhead sharks. So many game fish as well - shoaling Bigeye Kingfish, Rainbow Runners and more. Some Tuna as well and lots of reef fish around. With some interesting Plankton in the water ... like we even had time to take note, a not too shabby start to the day.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacle: The reef was alive with loads of reef fish and with very little current, you could really take note of the smallies ... even saw some Crayfish ... lol. But that was just the start. A huge shoal of Bigeye Kingfish with an Oceanic Blacktip shark chasing them. Also some shoaling Bonito. Lots of other gamefish. 2 Round Ribbontail Rays. On the bottom also 2 Zambezi (Bull) sharks. Mid water was also action packed with at least 3 Zambezi (Bull) sharks popping in and out. Also 2 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. At least 10 shoaling Hammerhead sharks. Some Rainbows Runners also came flying through and 4 Remora's kept us entertained and lead us to the sharks.
