Swimming with whale sharks in Belize

whale shark in placencia belize

These are images of the amazing Melecia Banks, from the Belize tourism board, and yours truly on the day we swam the giant whale sharks off the coast of Placencia, Belize last week. Its hard to tell from this picture , but this is one big fish. This one was about 25 feet long and they reach up to 50 feet in size. Its hard to describe what bobbing around in open ocean with something the size of a bus is like.
