Whale Shark in El Hierro

July 8, 2009

The Whale Shark has arrived in Mar de las Calmas in La Restinga and hopefully will be with us for the next while!!

This morning, while moored at the Punta Lajial Buoy, another Dive Centre, that had been diving near by,  shouted to us…

“We’ve just been diving with a Whale Shark!”

We quickly set off in search, but as luck would have it, by the time we arrived it was gone.   As many divers know with the Whale Shark when you go searching for them, you rarely find.  It’s usually when you least expect it that this beautiful creature appears!

The Whale Shark was approximately 6m long and was very close to the dive buoy and the surface.  For sure it was an unforgettable experience for those who got kitted up extra quick and had the luck to dive face to face with the largest fish in the sea.

But what’s great is that it’s here now and with a little luck we too will have the opportunity to play a leading part in the one of the many surprises that our underwater world has to offer….
