Whale shark adventures in Marsa Alam

Guests of Emperor Divers in Marsa Alam enjoyed a 'fantastic close encounter' with an attention-grabbing huge whale shark this week!

Ayesha Cantrell and friends were on their return journey from diving the sites of Marsa Alam when the Captain spotted something rather large! The BIG dark spot in the water demanded investigation and, on sending out the RIB with Ayesha on board, they soon discovered the 'dark spot' was none other than a huge Whale Shark.

Understandably, excitement spread through all the guests who promptly entered the water! The whale shark, meanwhile, took it all in its stride and completely ignored all snorkelers - but not before posing politely for a couple of great shots.
