Baby Whale Shark, first seem scared but then checked us out, came right up to us, circled approx 3 x the group and swam off in southerly direction. Was later very close to the breakers in very shallow water, just to pop up underneath the Zodiak and main Vessel. Trip with 3 Island Marine on new boat Nedo-k, skipper Mick
