Myself, Brandon (Miller Time), John (Telum Pices), and Bianca dove the Chevron. After shooting some AJ's, we got up close to a Whale Shark.
It was a GoPro Hero2.Was someone using a GoPro? You could see the excitement from the bubbles.
Yeah, when I was swimming out to it I was aiming to go after the dorsal fin to get a ride. But I didn't get a good angle as it was swimming. So by the time I got to it, I was near the rear. So I grabbed on and once it felt my weight, you can sit it kick a little harder and I let go.Wow!
Yeah, they don't like having their tail touched.
No problem. Glad you had a great time.It was such a great experience that I will always remember. It was definately on the bucket list to see one. But to go out there and grab on for that little moment was great. You could feel the power and water being pushed by its tail. We were glad that Brandon and Bianca got to see it as well when they went down. They are such graceful animals to see underwater. That experience made the day one of the best diving days in my diving career so far.
It was a great day of diving/spearfishing with plenty of fish on top of seeing the whale shark.
Thanks again for getting us out Brandon. Till next time.
