When you have spent a year exploring some of the best beaches and diving sites in the world, it really takes something special to blow you away. After the amazing colours of the sea in Coron in the Philippines and the crystal clear waters of Koh Tao, I thought I had seen it all, but another great Adventure was about to start.
Having arrived on the island of Fulidhoo, we decided to take one of their snorkelling trips. We had seen tiny reef sharks in the water by the shore, so when they mentioned we would be seeing sharks, I just assumed it would be these little 40cm babies. I was wrong. Having pulled up in the boat at our first snorkelling spot, I jumped in an eagerly began exploring. Having seen some huge fish, I dived down beneath the waves to get a better look.
