Today we SWAM WITH A WHALE SHARK, literally the biggest fish in the sea. It was huge and beautiful, sharky and spotted and mystical. We also saw loads of humpback whales, some of them jumping further off, some cresting quite up close, also massive and majestic. Many dolphins as well and one sea turtle! We went out on a hard-bottomed zodiac with about 10 other people. We eventually located a whale shark and dove in... it was both wonderful and slightly unnerving to be in the open water with such a giant. The ocean is gorgeous and massive and powerful - you are clearly not in charge out there in its expanse! Unfortunately due to human behaviours it is also in trouble - we've heard several times here that whale shark sightings (of multiple animals sometimes) were practically guaranteed 15-20 years ago, whereas now one is fortunate to see one (as we fortunately did).
