We had an AMAZING surface interval – I swam with a baby whale shark!!! It was probably about 5m and it was only after two unsuccessful sightings (jumping in the water, madly finning, then nothing and having to fin back to the boat) that on the third try, we pretty much jumped on top of it! It was so graceful, a spotted dusky grey colour. Magnificent!!

The dive was a nice chilled out “drift dive” with no current. The site was a gently sloping reef, which was a garden of soft corals. Saw a green moray swimming about and a big cowfish floating about in midwater.
