Just returned from a superb week of diving in the Maldives and encountering whalesharks.
Here is just a short clip of our encounter with a Whaleshark on Maamigili Reef which is at the most southern part of the South Ari Atoll.
Here regular sighting of Whalesharks can be found on our regular trips to the Maldives. This beauty joined us at around 20 metres down during a slow drift eastwards along the reef.
This Whaleshark was medium sized at around 10 metres in length and in very good health.
To show how relaxed these beautiful creatures are, this one swam right up to me and for a while was only two metres away.
