Dupree and I are going to Cancun in a couple weeksMoo Uaon;424578 said:But does size really matter?
Yeah,they hang around for their food but their natural environment is still there for them unlike zoos and aquariums etc
I was doubtful about an encounter with them right up to mins before i jumped in the water...first look and i didn't see anything 55 then looked around and saw these huge,placid and graceful animals sneaking up behind me with young in tow not far away which then headed over towards me and our boat to get food.
Sure enough there's plenty of tourists there floating around on the very surface with snorkel gear but the 20-25m below of clear water is all theirs so not as intrusive as you'd think.
One of the biggest there came right over to me and started munching burley right off my chest and intimidated me a bit and i started to back off trying not to accidentally poke it in the eye...it was that close and i could see it could easily swallow me whole.
As i said...i was quite pessimistic about it all but it ended up being one of the coolest things i've done.! and would probably do it again.
For me it was just a quick 4 day weekend before a nmbiz trip in US
But I'm not going on my biz trip so was thinking of extending my trip to 7-8 days
Then I said screw it, I want to come back for the whale sharks this summer at some point
