Mike and his Big Pet whale shark

At first it looked as if the whale shark was going to have Mike as a small morning snack but it turned out they became really good friends. We had the privilege of witnessing something very special on a two hour meet and greet with some very friendly whale sharks in Cenderawasih Bay Papua where we stayed in the Ahe dive resort. All is going really well on this scubasigns project and we receive more and more guests that like us are amazed with the whale sharks and their behaviour.

Note… at the Ahe Dive Resort we follow a strict no touch, chase or in any other way harm a whale shark policy .. so far the divers/snorklers comply but the whale sharks just won’t listen.
