Whale Shark Sighting on PADI Scuba Open Water Course

For the last few days we’ve had fantastic visibility around Koh Tao, Thailand. Even better, this morning during the last two dives of their PADI Open Water Course, Joost & Marjolien [Netherlands] got to enjoy 2 dives with a whale shark.

Diving at the Chumphon Pinnacles with DJL Diving instrutor Alex, the group were joined by a 4 metre whale shark. Luckily, Alex had his camera to hand, and was able to capture these great photos of the whale shark.

Also on the boat to enjoy the spectacle was Kieron, teaching a PADI Advanced Open Water class for Diane (Australia), Sebastian & Deborah (Germany). The whale shark circled the pinnacle and remained around the dive site for both dives.
