Ever wanted to swim with Whale Sharks… Everyone does, right?
“Get your feet over the side and hang on…”when I say JUMP, you JUMP – Ok?” “Ok,” I say timidly – Synthia holds my hand – I am grateful. I was terrified of jumping into the heaving swell and getting water up my nose!
What happened next was all a bit of a blur. With Synthia beside me in the water directing me this way and that way, I found myself swimming right on top of the world’s largest fish… All 9 metres of him, or was it a her?
Nothing prepared me for how awe inspiring it looked… until I actually put my face under the water… and come face to face with it.
