    it was awesome, 9m long, and he stayed with us for ever, and never went deeper than 5m.

    I too had an experience with a whale shark. BUT, the experience was limited to patting and stroking the animal ;) (no no, get your minds up from the gutter!)

    We JUST completed a night dive. As we JUST got ready to head back to the beach (this was at Ponto do Ouro - Mozambique), the skimmer noticed something a few meters from the boat.... he went alongside, and it was a 8.5/8.7 metre whale shark. We spent 15 to 20 minutes with the whale shark. Was an AMAZING experience! The dorsal fin was HIGHER than the pontoon of the SCUBA DUCK!
