WHALE SHARK ENCOUNTER; Moalboal Philippines

in OCD8 months ago (edited)

I have spent many years traveling the world as a diver, the thing that got me into diving was the hope that one day I would get to see a whale shark. After 20 years of chasing whale shark seasons in Cuba, Thailand, Egypt and the Philippines that day finally arrived.
On a beautiful clear day myself along with Big Jim captured some great footage here's a short edit of that special day.

It probably just wanted a hug.

Haha, I would have been happy to, my arms aren't long enough so a belly rub is probably more in order.

Absolutely unreal, there's some National Geographic stuff going on over there. Awesome, thanks for sharing.

It was a pretty special moment, iv'e seen a few since but generally fleeting encounters as they pass by.

I would say 20 years is worth the wait for something that magical.

Patience is a virtue as they say, the ocean is rich with life so iv'e had plenty of other things to feed my eyes while waiting for this day.

I love whale sharks! They are so cool.

Probably my favorite creature on earth, as a kid I saw them on documentaries and from then I wanted to dive with them. Took a long time for it to happen but finally got my reward.
