DIVE 1 - Northern Pinnacles: Reef was very pretty, lots of reef fish and 2 Potato Bass. And then as we started coming up, at about 20m, A WHALE SHARK ... just casually come in to say Hi and then left ... OH MY ... I could not believe my eyes ... OH MY what a experience ... FOR SURE THE MOST INCREDIBLE DIVE EVER ... such a happy diver right now ... BIG SMILE!!!!! Also a couple of Remora's that stayed around and some awesome 'jellies'!!! WHAT CAN I SAY, THIS IS WHY PROTEA BANKS IS SO SPECIAL ... always full of a few surprises!!!
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacles: Reef so alive and full of reef fish. A Potato Bass. 1 baby Guitar shark. Hundreds and hundreds of Bonito. And an Oceanic Blacktip shark that come to say Hi on the safety stop, plus some 'jellies I have never seen before.
Dolphins seen from boat. WHAT CAN I SAY ... I WILL NEVER FORGET TODAY ... over and out ...
