I had an outstanding experience today!  Left early this morning and boarded a tiny boat with nine others and some guides.  We took a 70 minute boat ride out into the Atlantic Ocean until we came across a school of whale sharks.  Two at a time we jumped into the water for a closer look.  Although my first dive was thrilling, my second was a once in a lifetime experience.  My guide told me to swim in one direction.  Suddenly through my mask I saw this massive whale shark swimming toward me.  I quickly turned my body to move up alongside it.  Together we began to swim side by side.  I was literally at his eye about a foot away.  It was undescribable to have the opportunity to swim next to this beast and see him up close.
