Whale Sharks!

Whale Sharks!

Just around the corner from the anchorage in La Paz is a major feeding ground for juvenile (and sometimes adult) whale sharks. As soon as we heard this, we scrambled to get together with friends and head out to see if we could catch a glimpse of them. Early one morning we jumped on board S/V Miramar and headed out with snacks and snorkels, ready to have a lovely day sail regardless of whether we ended up finding any whale sharks. Not only was the sailing beautiful and the company even better, we spotted a whale shark, jumped in the water, and swam along side him for several minutes! Drew even got to touch him when at one point the whale shark switched directions and plowed into him. The water was a little murky so the pictures don’t do these giants justice, but needless to say, it was a phenomenal experience.
