Diving Cabo Pulmo
A Day of Diving at Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort
This morning we went out to the beach, the water was nice and calm. This is going to be a good day, I thought!
After a quick briefing about the dives, we jumped in the boat and headed to our famous dive site "El Bajo" This dive site is incredible for the coral reef, but also for the amazing schools of fish! You can see moray eels, rays, puffer fish and sometimes you can even happen upon and unexpected surprise.....
About 12 minutes into our dive this morning, we saw a BIG shadow swimming toward us.....
A whale shark! What a thrill to encounter one of these huge, amazing sharks!
Despite its size, the whale shark is not dangerous to humans. These giants have a diet of mostly plankton and small fish. The young whale shark was about seven meters long. It was not afraid of us and wanted to take a closer look at us! After allowing us to snap some pictures and videos, he decided to swim on against the current, with what looked like no effort at all.
A good day indeed!
