Whale shark sighted in Kota Kinabalu in March 2012

This year so far has enjoyed a bumper whale shark season in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with several sightings every month since January.

In the latest sighting, which was just yesterday, several of Downbelow’s guests literally came face to face with the whale shark.

Some of guests had cameras with them and snapped these beautiful pictures, showing how close the giant filter feeder got to them.

Resident PADI Course Director Richard, who was on the island at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre at the time, immediately grabbed his camera gear and raced to where the whale sharks were sighted.

Unfortunately, buy the time he got there, they had already moved on, so, this time, no pictures for Richard of the march whale sharks sighting in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

We continue our daily diving with high hopes of further enjoying the frequent whale shark sightings in Kota Kinabalu’s TAR Park.
