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

I am so envious. And I think I hate you shwaya :)
How was the sea today? Nothing interesting to share?
And are we going this weekend? We will not take no for an answer.

Hate me/Love me, who cares I still had an hour of fun with a whale shark and you didnt.
Today was aweful, no wind at all, very humid and the current was very strong.
Weekend... I'm good, why not do it on thursday so that we can stay late and catch the 2nd tide instead of having to rush out of the island??

Life isnt fair... he he he, but it's been kind to me :)

I wouldn't expect the big guy to show up again, I've been diving for over 2 years now and I only got to see him once.

So if you wanna see him you have to go diving very frequently and maybe, just maybe you will.

I know people who have been diving for ages and still didnt see one.

Even my dive instructor was jealous cause he never saw one.

Hi Pepsi Guy,

I saw you are using the same camera as i do. Sony DSC T30
Could you tell which settings you are using when you take underwater pictures cause I could find anything about it on the web.

Sorry for the late response, for some reason I didn't see your comment till now.

I use no special settings. However, I do use Adobe Photoshop to fix the images afterwards to compensate the loss of the red color.
