During the diving season from April up to September, diving here in Kuching of Sarawak brings a lot of unbelievable chances to see many different marine lives on each different dive points. Manta Ray, Dolphins, Sea Turtles…The other day, while being underwater at one of our famous dive sites off Kuching, a cute whale shark took some remoras with her suddenly appeared and even came to divers as if she wanted to greet and say hello!! to us. Whale sharks coming to Kota Kinabalu every year are quite famous for divers but not in Kuching.

The whale shark was with us underwater for about 15minutes or so. And more surprisingly, even we are on the surface interval, she was swimming around the boat for another 15minutes. Amazing! Just amazing! We thank the wonderful gift from Kuching’s underwater.
