When I was SCUBA diving off the coast of Mozambique for a week, we were on a boat headed to a dive site when our driver spotted a whale shark nearby. He stopped the boat so we could all hop in to snorkel with the largest fish in the ocean. Whale sharks have baleen teeth like other whales, so they aren't as dangerous as they sound. I was almost close enough to touch the thick skin of an animal the size of a school bus! It was a truly unforgettable to swim right up next to such a large and majestic creature!
Later on that day, we got to dive with Manta Rays, Lion Fish and Morey Eels!
