Free diver gets the opportunity to swim alongside the biggest fish in the ocean. Hundreds of Whale Sharks migrate to the small island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico in the summer to feed on plankton. This allows snorkelers to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact and swim next to these gentile giants. This whale shark let us swim next to it for about 5 min allowing us to really get an up close interaction and special moment.
