The DPG expedition to Isla Mujeres, Mexico started today when we went searching for whale sharks. We have heard many amazing things about the whale shark congregation, but it's impossible to comprehend how amazing this spectacle is until you actually see it.
Within an hour of packing up the boat, we were surrounded by hundreds of whale sharks. Almost everywhere we turned there was a 20-35 foot shark cruising by near the surface. After spending about 5-6 hours in the water with them, we still couldn't quite grasp what we had just witnessed.
It was one of the most amazing days any of us had ever had on the water, and we still have four more left.
