Whale shark bumps into Jana

We’ve been filming whale sharks again and this time the shark was even closer, so close in fact that he hit me with his tail!

We’d been told that whale shark sightings off the coast of Oman were almost guaranteed in September. Unlike my previous scuba diving encounter, this time our Dive Master scanned for fins on the surface in open water, not far from the Millennium Mussanah Hotel, then we all jumped in with snorkels to swim with the sharks.

Sea Oman has seen up to seven sharks together; we saw three and one of them was very friendly, coming right up to the boat and swimming so close to us that he hit my camera, as you will see from the video. Don’t worry the only thing that was hurt in this encounter was my camera!
