Video: Whale Shark Seemingly Disappears in Sail Rock Thailand

Sail Rock Thailand Whale Shark
Whale shark disappears through a sea of fish
We are fortunate to have another wonderful whale shark video from Sail Rock.  The location is a premier dive site in the Gulf of Thailand and lies between Koh Phangan and Koh tao.

Sail Rock is a pinnacle which rises to 15m above and 40m below the surface and is famous for its natural underwater vertical swim.  The area is known for having many larger pelagic fish including chevron barracuda, big schools of mackerel, jacks, trevally and tuna. And of course, the dive site is also well known for the whale sharks which pass though on a seasonal basis.

Below we have an amazing video from SailRockDailyNews and was sent to us by underwater photographer Evgeny Kovban via Facebook.  For that, we extend to him many thanks.  Enjoy this beautifully haunting 55 second video as we see a whale shark slowly disappear though a sea-cloud of fish.
