Epic Bluewater Whale Shark Encounter

Figured this would make as good a first post-reboot... post... as any. We'll get this up on the Rock & Reef channel soon, but it's currently available on my old YouTube account as well.

A group of friends and I got the rare chance to swim with a very friendly (and large!) Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) while enjoying a long-range South Kona dive charter with Kona Diving Company. Herein, your humble host decides to shut up and let this magnificent fish speak for itself.

 This is the raw footage -- I was not intending to shoot video that day an only had a dome port equipped GoPro at hand, so there are some underwater focus issues, but it was certainly better than not getting the shot at all!
