Swim with a Whale Shark
View Original Description
The Whale Shark is the ocean’s gentle giant. Known as the largest fish in the sea these creatures can grow as long as 13 meters. Giants they are but their diet consists of some of the smallest living things on earth, plankton, which are relatively microscopic in size compared to the massive Whale Sharks. These migratory sharks visit a number of places around the planet where warm water and a temperate climate prevail. The opportunity to don a snorkel and mask with the goal to swim with a Whale Shark is available at a number of locations around the world. No cage needed for your adventure with the sharks, they have no interest in eating you, and the huge fish are famously slow swimmers, allowing for some up close and personal encounters. Those that have had the experience says it’s as if you are on safari in a jeep in Africa and come across a herd of elephants, you are able to get out and run with the pack. Swimming alongside one of nature’s largest creatures can create memories that will last a lifetime.
