"Whale shark diving" Shanzu by alusru

Shanzu Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 171 photos

The dive guides told us, that with our booked 10 dives we should see one whale shark ... 90 per cent guarantee. We saw 5 whale sharks in 13 dives, that was a lot more than we could ever dream of!

Of course there are not only whale sharks to see!
To show you all these lovely underwater pictures I have to give special thanks to my very good friends Franz and Walter from Vienna and also to Nick from Germany.

    Wow, that diving experience must have been breathtaking (oops. hopefully not while diving....!!!) I know the excitement from diving and seeing those school of tiny fish, but seeing whale sharks must be awesome!

    Splendid adventures indeed! Certainly a lot more to see here than the poor Adriatic! Great photos from your friends!
