Whale Shark on Thursday 5th February

We are all amazed to see a whale shark this late in the season. ! An unscheduled dive at Chuckles Rocks  on the way to L'Ilot Island was done on Thursday morning as the water was so clear and we had not been to this site for a while . A huge set of granitic  boulders starting at 7 meters and dropping steeply to 15 meters . Lots of gullies and whip corals abound . Good dive but the best was the safety stop . Along came the 3 .5 to 4 meter juvenile whale shark . It took such an interest in the  divers that they were able to get out the water after the stop and get back into the  water again for a  snorkel ....over 30 minutes encounter . Wonderful

A most amazing sight
