BETTER VIZ ... LESS SHARKS ON PROTEA BANKS ... GO FIGURE!!!
28 January 2015 | PROTEA BANKS
Viz: clean to 20m and then still dirty at bottom
Sea Temp: very warm to 15m, then cold ... brrrrrrr
DIVE 1 - Northern Pinnacles: The viz was not great at the bottom, from 20m upwards, perfect viz. With the current pulling out to sea, we dived right past La La Land. We got to see lots of reef fish very quickly due to current. Also a very very close encounter with a Potato Bass. We also had shoaling Tuna and Bonito. Also 1 Oceanic Blacktip shark near the end.
On the surface interval, we had some Dolphin action.
DIVE 2 - Southern Pinnacles: 1 Round Ribbontail Ray. Lots of reef fish seen quickly.
