Whark Shark Sighting in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park by Borneo Dream
January – March marks the Whale Shark season around the coastline of Sabah. Whilst not many Whale Sharks come close to the coastline near Kota Kinabalu during March during one of our scuba diving trips to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park in March we were lucky enough to dive with one.
Our PADI Instructor, Gene, and his diving customers from Gaya Island Resort were enjoying a 3 dive trip to TARP, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. During the safety stop on their afternoon dive a 6 – 7m Whale Shark came slowly by them. In Gene’s words “It was slowly swimming by and came really close and stopped to look at us. It was at least as big as Borneo Dream Betty!”. How I wish I went diving that day ;).
Borneo Dream runs daily scuba diving trips to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park from our three dive centres with collection from Sutera Harbour Marina, Gaya Island Resort and Jesselton Point Jetty.
