Whale sharks are filter feeding sharks, that can grow up to 40 feet and can weigh as heavy as 36 tons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whale_shark). I had the opportunity to swim with these gentle giants while in Holbox, Mexico.

Ever since I first saw a whale shark on TV I wanted to swim with them but never thought I'd be able to do it.  I ended up working on Christmas Island for 5 weeks during top whale shark sighting season, went on a diving trip, hoping but not expecting to see one.  On our first dive trip we were about 25 metres down when we looked up and saw one swimming above us.  We were too low to get up quickly to where it was without causing serious damage to our lungs so were a little dissapointed but happy just to have seen one.  Went out another day and as we were on the boat heading out to a dive site the dive instructor all of a sudden started yelling at us to jump in and all of a sudden we were swimming with a 3m whale shark, on that trip we swam with about 4 different whale sharks, they were so close you could almost touch them and 1 almost hit me with its massive tail as it turned.  One of the most amazing experiences of my life

It was a fantastic experience. I just wish I hadn't been so nauseated by the ocean swells.
