Whale Shark madness

We all love to see whale sharks so  as the  season  approaches there is, naturally  an increase of  excitement  amongst both divers and staff.

No surprise then that some have taken whale sharks with them everywere they go!....see some of the tattoos that have  been done .

A quick visit from HMAS NEWCASTLE

Tuesday 25th  was a busy day for  us after receiving a phone call from HMAS Newcastle  to take some of the crew out SCUBA diving and snorkelling .  Bay Ternay Marine Park was chosen for the snorkelling boat  and wrecks and coral reefs for the divers.

We dont often get Australian Navy visiting us  in Seychelles  and although this was one of the fastest turn arounds ever seen   we all hope for  a repeat visit .

Whale Sharks arrive for 2013

As predicted we have had reports of the first sightings of the Whale Shark!. Unfortunately still a long way from Beau Vallon but they are heading in the right direction.......

The MCSS Research program will start again in September . The Research team and pilots arrive mid August to prepare the microlite plane and to get the training needed to report on these creatures.
We are all hopeful for a good season .
