Whale Shark in night dive
After spotting a whale shark at the surface interval between dives, we spotted another whale shark in night dive!
So here we are again and this is why our divers and Aquanaut team were so blessed on 17th February.
This time we went to do a Night Dive in Paradise Beach, located in Cadlao Island, one of the most astonishing islands in the Bacuit Bay, El Nido. Usually we go there to do confined water sessions of PADI courses but also because in the night dive, macro life and critters can be seen such as nudibranch, seahorses, pipe fish, octopus, shrimps, crabs in disguise and beautiful sea orchids and stars.
Honestly we didn’t spot the whales shark in the night dive. It was the whale shark that at the end of the night dive, while the divers were doing the safety stop, it hit softly the head of one diver. Imagine his surprise and excitement when he focused with the torch light and he saw the impressive 6 meters whale shark, eating the plankton around them 🙂
As always life surprises all of us in all ways … going to dive to spot macro and critters and finding a massive whale shark in night dive.
Since we spotted also a whale shark the same day but at different location and time, we sent some pictures to www.whaleshark.org to collaborate and help the researchers to go on studying the life and behavior of these unknown animals. If ever you have the chance to spot a whale shark and take pictures, don’t hesitate to report an encounter and help the scientists.
Thank you very much again to the divers who were with us and could film it with GoPro, Thibault, Ben, Max 🙂
