First Whale Shark Sighted for 2011

A curious whale shark was spotted last week only 40 metres beyond the edge of Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, heralding the arrival of its brethren behemoths.  The whale shark was estimated at 3.5 metres.

In addition to the sharks’ arrival, Qantas have also announced the launch of their new Perth-Exmouth service.  The new Qantas service operates on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the first scheduled flight departing on Wednesday March 30th.
