SY Platypus reports further on their cruise around Australian coast including a rare opportunity to swim with and touch an 8 metre whale shark!! Fantastic photo!

This is a phenominal area for swimming/diving, and not well known even inside Aus. The reef, coral bay, monkey mia, and shark bay are definitely places you should never go to (so I can enjoy them better on my own)
