Well the week so far has been dismal besides Saturday and Sunday. Big swell and plenty wind dirtied up the inshore. Today (Friday) the swell dropped and a good west blew. Saturday morning a light southwest blows switching to an onshore later in the day with a 1.2m swell running. Sunday morning the northeast picks up speed during the day with a 1.4m swell running. So it looks like Saturday is good for a dive. King and queen mackerel should be around. Not much viz was reported today but south should be diveable. As always dive safe and straight spears

Thank you Jason Heyne

Huge Zambezi in Umzimkulu Mouth

Huge Zambezi in Umzimkulu Mouth Submitted by: Sean Lange Report: Huge Zambezi in Umzimkulu Mouth For an hour or more, we watched as a huge Zambezi Shark patrolled the fast outflowing water of the Umzimkulu River this afternoon.
