Whaleshark sighted today in Kona Hawaii....

Today I put a couple of my passengers on my friend Ron's boat. They dove with me a few years back and came over to dive again. Today's experience was sort of one of those "once in a lifetime" experiences for them. These four shots were taken by Alan from Scotland on the charter.

The group was just finishing their first dive and Ron noticed a group of boats offshore, figured it had to be a whaleshark or something exciting. The group got about a half hour of snorkeling with it before it was all over. This last photo gives you an idea of the size of the shark compared to a person.

Those photos are amazing. The second one just blows me away. I love the sleek and supple look of that animal. I wish I could have seen it up close myself!

As for the fourth shot, you must (!) be kidding. That shark isn't that big. Is it??
