02nd October 2017
Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique

DIVE 1 : Blacktip Shark in the first minute. Then a Grey Reef Shark stuck with us for a while. Later a young male Tiger Shark came in nice and close, very distinct stripes. Stayed for a lil bit. Then a Bull Shark swam past on our level and one Hammerhead Shark snuck in behind us. Later we saw about 15 Hammerhead Sharks in the distance. And lastly we had two Silvertip Sharks with us on our deco stop. SIX SHARK SPECIES - absolute cracker.

DIVE 2 : Two Silvertip Sharks near the begining. Right on the pinnacles at least 30 Hammerhead Sharks that completely surrounded us for quite a while. And Bull Shark that swam under us. Awesome Dive.

DIVE 1 : Pinnacles. Dropped straight onto a bull that didn't stick around. Joined straight away by a silvertip that stayed with for at least 20min, coming right up close to the group. Later on we got a bus tiger that was close for about 2mins. At point it was firing off. We had a tiger, bull, silvertip and blacktip all together. And then another 2 blacktips towards the end of the dive. Good dive.

DIVE 2 : Drop Zone. Good Reef Dive - Loads of life.
