Just off the coast of Cancun, Mexico, we set sail for the open waters near Isla Mujeres. There, we found a small group of whale sharks, between 8 and 12 meters long. I was lucky to have the chance to swim with these peaceful beasts. They wouldn't hurt a herring (they prefer filter-feeding) but when I saw them swimming along with their huge mouths agape it seemed I might inadvertently be gobbled up. No such drama, but still pretty damn dramatic!
