WHALE SHARK SAFARI
FROM MAY 15th TO SEPTEMBER 15th
Adults 155 usd + 5 usd tax
The whale shark, Rhincodon typus, is a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 meters (41.50 ft) and a weight of more than 21.5 metric tons (47,000 lb), and there are unconfirmed reports of considerably larger whale sharks. Claims of individuals over 14 meters (46 ft) long and weighing at least 30 metric tons (66,000 lb) are not uncommon. The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living non-mammalian vertebrate, rivaling many of the largest dinosaurs in weight. The Whale Shark conveys peace and tranquillity, and it is completely harmless to humans, it is actually a very docile and curious creature. The Whale Shark swims very slowly on the surface which makes it easy and relaxing to swim with them. Swimming alongside this gentle giant of the sea is an experience to remember.
