Whale Shark season has begun!
The whale shark is the biggest fish that exists on the planet today, it can grow to up 15 meters long(50 Feet). The whale shark prefers the warm surface water in areas where there are outbreaks of colder water rich in nutrients and in the waters between Isla Mujeres and Holbox Island in summer, since these conditions favor the growth of plankton on which they feed. The whale shark has in common with whales except for its size and the fact that only eats tiny plankton collected with his mouth open. Usually it feeds on the surface or slightly below this. Whale sharks are viviparous animals and sometimes sees young calves swimming with the elderly.
Whale sharks are very docile and gentle, they do not get scared when they are approaching divers or swimmers.
