Swimming With the Magnificent Whales
Be ready and put on your fins, snorkel, and plunge to see the world’s biggest fish. The sharks float gently as their giant mouths strain plankton.

If you’re close enough, you’ll feel the exceptional strength of their big bodies. You are lucky enough if you will be surrounded by many whale sharks feeding at the surface. Indeed, swimming with these incredible creatures up close is an unforgettable and magical experience.
