Whale Sharks

A lot of field herpers seem to go fishing, or maintain aquariums, as much as they do herp! Any and all things fish are welcome in this forum.

Whale Sharks

Post by LouB747 » May 25th, 2015, 9:23 pm

I had this encounter a couple of years ago but sorta forgot about the video I took as it didn't turn out that great. My friends GoPro (Hero 2) kept fogging up and the video looks a lot worse than it was. Anyways, I put together this quick video today, more than 2 years later!

Swimming with Whale Sharks was a lifetime moment!

Video was taken in Djibouti on the east side of Africa.

Super cool!! I liked the little crab swimming as much as the footage of the sharks. :-)

Thanks so much everyone. Yeah, my YouTube channel is growing. Just trying to share the experience is an experience in itself. Thanks for watching. My son says, "subscribe!" He's tracking my YouTube activity.
