Thanks for the comments only wished the trip could be longer so you can have more time experiencing where you are and how special a place it is. :)

Here is one my favorites from reasonably local dive site of Byron Bay. It is of the summer time visitors a Leopard Shark (or Zebra). And following everyone else a second from a trip through Indonesia with the whale sharks of Cenderawashi bay. And third from the Philippines in Barracuda lake at Coron.

I have made up length of rope to which I have spliced two quick snaps to. It serves as a carry handle or with one end unclipped from housing it can be then clipped off to bcd.
Please refer to attached photo.

Hi Peter,

Does look similar in action. So who knows? Potentially from Cenderawashi or could even be curious or just following a plankton stream? All we can hope for that these sharks are protected along with other shark species before it's to late.

Cool video Peter, it was interesting to see the female there as all the reports I have seen said that it was a male population. I missed seeing the one larger Whale Shark which was up to 10m in length so it seems that there might be also an adult (or young adult) population there. Either way a great experience to swim with them. I hope it stays that way.
