A group of lucky tourists receives the chance of a lifetime when their vessel comes across one of the few sharks you would want to encounter in the open ocean. In this video, a curious whale shark decides to see what these tourists are all about.
Whale sharks, the largest sharks in the entire world, also happen to be one of the most gentle. A filter-feeder, the whale shark casually swims through the sea filtering krill and other tiny organisms through its mouth.
Because of this, the shark makes a welcome appearance to this tour group, who probably never expected to see a shark, much less a gentle one. Not only do they see the shark, they get quite up-close-and-personal with it.
Surely these tourists will remember this day for the rest of their lives, and maybe even the whale shark will too. Watch the video to see the other aquatic acquaintances these tourists made out in the deep blue sea.
