An intimate moment with the biggest fish on this earth, we swim together with them in the blue ocean.

Have you ever seen a fish with almost 10 meters long ? Yes, this is the largest fish exist on this planet, it's WHALE SHARK. In Nabire Papua, fishermen make them very tame to human by feeding them with small fishes. They're so intelligent, we can swim very close with them, it's like that they trying to communicate to us. Another film produced in conjunction with BELAJARDIVING.COM directed by Kaufik Anril.

Nabire is a small town in the central part of Papua province of Indonesia. Fishermen in this area (Cendrawasih Bay) often visited by the biggest fish on the planet. Small fish which spreaded by fishermen for fishing often eaten by the whale shark. Due to the large population of whale sharks in the region, eventually attracting the attention of scientists and scuba divers from around the world. Need to fight a little harder to dive in this area, we spend a full day sailng from Manokwari to meet this inteligent fish.
