Whale shark trip November 28 2016

Today we had six whale shark encounters which turned out to be five individuals. One shark was new to us, a three metre male. Two are known from La Paz bay and the remaining two were first sighted 1000 kilometres north of here in Bahia de Los Angeles two years ago.

One of the encounters was extra special as the shark, a 5 metre or so male, was feeding in a vertical position, allowing us to swim around him for some time.

Joanne, Nancy and Wendy flew down from Canada to join us for what turned out to be great day of whale shark interactions

La Paz bay is super-productive right now and more and more sharks are arriving to take advantage of these rich feeding grounds.

A special thanks to [from left to right] Joanne, Nancy and Wendy whose participation directky supports the conservation efforts of this endangered species. Much fun was had by all 🙂
