Welcome to Kwatisore, the high light of diving in Cenderawasih. This his where you shall see whale sharks (Rhincodon typus), normally they are seen on their own when they are feeding and when they are not feeding they live in more than 1,200 meters below the surface of the water. But here we see them together (adults and juveniles) below the bagans (fishing platforms). Originally when the locals brought up their nets in the early morning catching millions ikan puri(small bait fish) the whale sharks followed the nets and were seen sucking on the nets. This is strange behaviour for the world’s largest fish which normally only eats plankton is truly unique to kwatisore, it is believed that they get nutrients and oils from the bait fish. So now liveboards buy the bait fish from the bagan fishermen and then we ask them to slowly throw them back in (on top of the whale sharks), then the whale sharks swim around taking the bait fish in their mouths but the bait fish come back out again via their gills. The whale sharks stay within 10m of the surface so it is really easy to snorkel with them.
