Places to Swim With Whale Sharks

Whale Shark EncounterWhale sharks are the biggest fish in the Ocean reaching lengths of 40 feet (12 meters) or more. The whale shark has a mouth which can be up to 5 foot (1.5 meters) wide and has an average weight of 20.6 tons. Lucky for us this gentle giant feeds on plankton. Swimming side by side with a whale shark is one of our top wildlife encounters that probably should be on your bucket list. Whale sharks populate all tropical seas.
