Theeeeeeee dive of a lifetime

I was gonna write something in this post but why bother... A picture is worth a thousand words, right..

Well I have a few pictures and a video of the most amazing dive I've ever been to since the day I started diving, so I will let the pictures speak for themselves :)

I saw a Whale Shark for the first time, it was almost 7 meters long and its face was almost 1 meter wide

Isn't it cute!!

My brother and I took turns taking pictures and videos as this experience may never ever happen again

And because we had so much fun, we decided to go diving in the same place the next day too

It is strange how a fish that large is not only harmless but curious and playfull, the Whale Shark kept on swimming next to us for a very long time.

We finally decided to just ignore it and swim away... Now I am really regretting leaving it

Bye Bye

Beware.....غشيم بيدش البحر

After a long wait, I finally got to take my boat on it's 1st test drive.
The weather was amazing, boat ride was cool (though we had to drive slowly to break down the new engines) and the dive was excellent.

On top of all of that we got to catch a fish (Faskar) while spear gunning... (notice how I am not mentioning the many other fish we missed)

The amount of jelly fish on the way back was unbelievable, the sea was filled with jelly fish like I've never seen before.
