2 June 2013 | PROTEA BANKS

Current: mild
Viz: 30m+
Sea Temp: 22 degrees Celsius

Southern Pinnacles: So what happens when you drop into warm water, realize that viz is top to bottom and there is no current? ... you know this is going to be an INCREDIBLE dive!!!!! So firstly the viz is endless and the reef so alive with a wide variety of fish. Then you spot a Ragged-tooth shark, which is a bit out of place on the Southern Pinnacles. Then a couple of Potato Bass pop in to say Hi ... just to make sure you haven't forgotten about them. AND then you have 12 DOLPHINS swimming towards you, you rub your eyes and think you are dreaming ... but no there are 12 Dolphins now swimming, at 30m, right past you. Okay ... so dive could have ended right here but is doesn't ... another Potato Bass swims right up to you and then you spot a big shoal of Kingfish surrounded by so many reef fish. Then a glimpse of a Lesser Guitar shark. On the way up are entertained by 4 Oceanic Blacktip sharks. AND then we spot a fisherman's paradise - HUNDREDS of shoaling fish including Bigeye Kingfish, with Tropical Amberjacks popping in and out.

AND then of course there were the 5 Remora's, that decided today was a great day to attack Kym's hair ... I must admit a few choice words were used!
