Whaleshark found in Lembeh!

NAD Lembeh Guides found Whaleshark

Every day of diving in Lembeh Strait is special – but some days are just more outstanding than others. Today was one of those days. It all started with very heavy tankbanging, when our Dive Guides Stenly (left) and Marnes (right) spotted a Whaleshark in between Aer Bajo 2 and Aer Bajo 3. The Whaleskark came slowly up from the deeper part, passed both of our dive groups, did a turn in the shallows and went slowly back out into the blue (OK … it was more green than blue). It was a very special experience for our guests: they had never seen a whaleshark before (some of them even went already  twice to Maldives specially to see one) and so they were very very happy. But the funniest part was Marnes back on the boat: “First a Mola Mola, now a whaleshark – i start liking these big fish” (it was his first Whaleshark he had seen underwater … but he already saw a Mola Mola in October).

    Seeing whale sharks when you’re expecting to see them (for example, when I was in Cenderawasih Bay last July) is quite the thrill. I can’t imagine how exciting it would be to see one where you aren’t expecting it.
