Swimming with the Whale Sharks

The whale shark is the largest fish in the sea, can reach lengths of 12 meters or more.  The shark’s massive body, broad flattened head, rounded dorsal fin and crescent-shaped tail are decorated with a ‘checkerboard’ pattern of light spots and stripes on a darker background. These markings may serve as camouflage from predators in the dappled light of the ocean and are used to identify individual animals.
We booked a day tour with Ocean Eco Adventure Tours in Exmouth and had a really good day with them.
