Amazing – my first whale shark under water.
Whale Shark Southwest Pinnacle Koh Tao
It was a great dive. However the conditions were not so easy. The visibility was between five and ten metres and the current was quite strong. Our guide managed the conditions professional.
We just went to Koh Tao to dive some not so common dive spots at Koh Tao. Southwest Pinnacle is one of them. It took us three days to find a diving school to go there, because the dive spot is book marked as a advanced dive spot. Therefore it is not so easy to find a dive school at the „Open Water Diver factory Koh Tao“. We were really happy to find Alvora Diving in Chalok Bay Koh Tao. They managed to bring us to Southwest Pinnacle.
It was a great dive. However the conditions were not so easy. The visibility was between five and ten metres and the current was quite strong. Our guide magaged the conditions professionally. Slowly we dived through the channels and around the pinnacle.
The dive spot is great. A lot of anemones and anemone fishes are around. And then it happened: I took some pictures of anemone fishes and a whale shark tried to cross behind my back. Luckely our guide saw the whale shark and I got him :-)
