    We went on a whale shark snorkel tour today and the weater was finally sunny, just perfect for our tour!

    We got up at 7am and drove to the jetty where our small boat was.
    After a quick briefing about snorkelling they spotted the first whaleshark from the searchingplane.

    We went to the place straight away and got into the water. After a few sec we saw that breathtaking 8.5m big fish (Whalesharks are the biggest fish in the world) ...soo beautiful! This peaceful boy swam very relaxed straight to us and we could swim along with about 3m distance to him. It was the most impressive experiennce we've ever had!

    The second one we saw was a junior with just 4-5m length. We have been in the water for about 3or 4 times to watch him swimming by.


    Passend für eusi Schnorcheltour ischs Wetter hüt wieder besser worde! Mir hend früeh (07:00) müsse ufstah :-D und sind denn zu de Tantabiddi Boat Ramp gfahre und ufs Boot umgstiege.

    Nachere churze iifüerig is Schnorchle; das au all druschömed, hends vom Flugzüg us scho de ersti Walhai gsichtet. Euse Skipper hett eus denn uf schnelstem Weg id nöchi bracht und eus i de schwümmrichtig vom Walhai abgsetzt.

    Zeme mit öppe 8 anderne lüt simmer denn in eher chüele indische Ozean ghüpft. Mit Kamera bewaffnet hemmer det es paar Sekunde gwartet bevor mer i öppe 15 meter Entfernig gseh hend wie de 8.5 meter grossi Walhai direkt uf eus zueschwümmt. So es grosses, wunderschöns Tier us nödmal 3 Meter entfernig chönne zbeobachte isch öppis vom iidrücklichste wo mir beidi je gmacht hend.
    Schlussendlicg hemmer 5 oder 6 mal chönne is Wasser mit 2 verschiedene Walhai. De zweiti isch mit 4-5 meter denn chli chlinner gsi :)
    Nebst dem ganze hemmer vom Boot us no jensti Buckelwal gseh wo usem Wasser gumpet sind. Drunder au es jungs wo nöd vill grösser gsi isch wienes Auto.

    Ps. De Stachelroche vom Foti hemmer am Tag vorher bim schnorchle nöd wiit vom Strand entfernt gseh.
    + Filmli chömmer oi denn dihei zeige ;)

    More Snorkelling: Cape Range NP

    June 1, 2017 in Australia

    We awoke yesterday morning to find out that kangaroos are quite inquisitive, as they had clearly examined the table we left out and looked at the front of the van (paw marks left behind)! They came back last night while we were still up and were quite happy eating while we stood next to them. The mother had a large joey half hanging out of her pouch and was eating the shrubs from there. We spent yesterday snorkelling at Oyster Stacks, Turquoise Bay and Kurrajong (where we camped) and saw many more fish, blue ringed rays, wedge shaped rays, green turtles and two octopus, one which was massive. It was a relief to go into the water as there was no wind, just sunshine at heat (30 degrees although it feels hotter with the sun reflecting off the white sand), not bad considering this is the start of the winter. We were up early again, to at least eat breakfast before 8am when it's much hotter, then spent the morning snorkelling. The Ningaloo Reef has certainly lived up to its reputation as a world class snorkelling destination where you can get to from the beach and pretty much have it to yourself.
    This afternoon we have started to make our way inland and are spending the night at a roadside rest area with other travellers. We drove over 200km and only saw about 12 other vehicles so it's no wonder that everyone you do pass waves to you. Looking forward to a shower after three days of salt water in the hair!
