Swimming with the whale shark the world's largest fish can be done in very few places in the world. The area between Holbox Island and Isla Mujeres in Mexico is one of the most privileged places in the planet and this the exact spot where comes the biggest whale shark number during the season between may 17th and september 17th every year.
The whale shark is the largest fish that exists in the world today, it can grow up to 15 meters in length. The whale shark prefers the warm surface water in areas where there are upwellings of cold water rich in nutrients, like the ones between isla Mujeres and Holbox island in summer time, since these conditions favor the growth of plankton on which they feed. The whale shark has nothing in common with whales except for its size and the fact that only eats tiny plankton that gathers with his mouth open. Normally it feeds on the surface or slightly below this. Whale sharks are viviparous animals and sometimes see young calves swimming with the elderly.
Whale sharks are very docile and gentle, do not get scared when they are approaching divers or swimmers.
