  • Thanks for the report.. It was great and pics were awesome!! I'll be gng in april for the first time so any information is greatly appreciated.

    Sad to hear the pelagics werent there in their usual numbers tho and that shark finning is actually happening on one of the so-called most protected dive sites where even gloves are not allowed.

  • Welcome jacpot. Hope you have better vis and luck there in April. I read they saw school of hammerheads there not long after we left! And whalesharks before we go. Actually I haven't witness the finning there myself. But I come across it on FB so I thought I include it in the report and hopefully can help to reach out to more supporters for the petition.

    Thanks Din! Phew, I was fortunate to see it at the final moment. Some of the other divers missed it as they were low on air and have surfaced earlier. I have another friend who missed it as well in another trip. :)
