A Beautiful Day for (Hopefully) Swimming with 40 Foot Long Whale Sharks

Beautiful one for a very early start.  In a few minutes we are getting picked up from our hotel…

to truck it over to Isla Holbox.  Pronounced with the Mexican-Mayan X = “Sh”…or  Holbosh.

Supposedly the whale sharks are in a veritable frenzy between Holbox and Contoy feasting on plankton and algae.  NOT human flesh.  He is only a filter feeded.

I will certainly let you know how it goes…
