Jana and Sandy were diving in the Daymaniyat Islands in Oman when suddenly, through the camera lens, behind a flighty batfish Jana saw something so unexpected it had her screaming through her regulator; at a guess it was an 8 metre long adult whale shark surrounded by an entourage of remora and other fish and it appeared the shark wanted company!

Jana spent a very pleasant 15 minutes with the shark swimming alongside her at a distance of less than a metre, performing beautifully for the camera.

This was an experience she will never ever forget!
