WhaleShark above me near Isla Mujeres They are so graceful that they look like they are barely moving until you try to swim with them, and it's tough to keep up!
My friends is a graceful free diver and smoothly glides underneath a large whale shark near Isla Mujeres.

While in Isla Mujeres to swim with Whale Sharks we lucked into a wonderful sharp eyed dive master who found some Green Sea Turtles mating and helped us go into stealth mode to quietly sneak up and observe. So awesome!!!
Whale Shark "Botellita"
They get vertical in dense areas of plankton to gulp in
large amounts of food. It is one of the most incredible sights that
I've ever seen! Giant fish just hanging suspended in the water column - very cool!
Isla Mujere...

well, apparently all of the scientists have made a grave error...
Whale Sharks do like to eat humans! Hahaha. Not photoshopped, other than to color correct and remove some backscatter; the shark and swimmer just lined up perfectly. wink
My wife swims next to a Whale Shark in Isla Mujeres. This particular one has a large gouge one it's back that appears to be from a propeller, but has healed nicely.

Black Durgeon in Cozumel
Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye these fish are pretty hard to capture in Cozumel; the swift currents combined with their tendency to dive in a hole at any motion makes it quite a challenge!
Turbulence

Stingray relaxing
When most of the group has run low on air and they surface, is the time that a lot of the life tends to make itself known on dives...
