Do You Want to Swim with Whale Sharks? Yes, You Do!

Do you want to swim with Whale Sharks? Every summer, from May 15 until September 15, a marvelous event happens in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

Fabulous Photos Friday: The Best of the Revillagigedos Archipelago

Fabulous Photos Friday: The Best of the Revillagigedos Archipelago

As I have said before, the Revillagigedos Archipelago is (so far!) the most exciting place I have ever dived. The big pelagic life is not only thrilling to see, but it is the only place I know of where Giant Mantas and Dolphins actually seek out humans for play.
