Queensland Diver Captures Young Whale Shark Feeding in Shallow Waters

A whale shark got stuck in the shallow waters of the Sunshine Coast on January 27, according to multiple videos shared online, after it had approached the coast to feed.

James Orr visited Noosa Heads shortly after the whale was freed from rocks near the shore, capturing underwater footage of the shark continuing to feed in the shallow water.

“It was a wonderful experience and to hear that it went back out into the bay and into deeper water was the best news,” he told Storyful. Credit: James Orr via Storyful
