DIVE 1 - Northern Pinnacle: On our way down to the reef we had a Zambezi (Bull) Sharks pass by. On our way to the first caves 2 of the divers spotted 3 HUMPBACK WHALES.!!!!! In the caves we had at least 15 Ragged Tooth Sharks and got to pick up a few Sharks teeth. While crawling around in the sand in our search for teeth, Jordan Bragge came flying in tapping everyone on the shoulder pointing up like a crazy person. Another 3 HUMPBACK WHALES PLAYING RIGHT ABOVE THE CAVES!!!!!! ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN!!!!! Suresh Naidoo bolted out of the caves after them and got to get a really close look!!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!!!!! Right before we started to multi level we had another Zambezi (Bull) Sharks pass by. Mid water we had at least 5 Oceanic Blacktip Shark popping in and out right up until our safety
DIVE 2 - Northern Pinnacle: Got to the caves again and had about 10 Ragged Tooth Sharks hanging around. On the reef we had 2 Zambezi Bull) Sharks and a Potato Bass. Mid water we had about 4 Oceanic Blacktip Sharks and 2 Zambezi (Bull) Sharks popping in and out keeping us busy for the rest of the dive. Great action packed dive.
