Young whale shark swims right into boat with his head
Whale sharks are among the most majestic and beautiful creatures in the ocean.
Massive and strong, yet gentle, they inspire wonder and awe among all who are fortunate enough to see one up close.
These lucky Canadians were taking part in an excursion with Searious Diving out of Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
They had the good fortune of swimming with dozens of enormous whale sharks on this day.
They had chosen Serious Diving specifically due to their reputation as ethical and conservation minded tour operators.
Not only do they strictly adhere to the laws and guidelines that protect these animals from harm, both intentional and unintentional, but they have led the movement to put these protections in place.
With true appreciation for these great beasts, and for ocean conservation, they are pressuring all tour operators to protect the whales while they allow people to experience ethical encounters.
