The biggest fish in the sea!
Our morning dives at Koh Tao’s amazing Chumphon Pinnacles dive site were punctuated by the giant of the seas; a whale shark.
Whilst the shark title sounds scary, these behemoths of the ocean filter feed on microscopic nutrients.
Rather than living in one place, whale sharks are migratory moving between fertile feeding and breeding grounds.
Luckily for us, they spend a few days filter feeding around our isolated pinnacles.
So after months alone at sea, migrating across the Pacific and Indian Oceans you arrive on Koh Tao and feast on plankton.
Give yourself a good scratch against the Simple Life boat :
The whale shark gave itself a good back-scratch against the corner of the Simple Life dive boat, before heading off into the blue.
