What Is a Whale Shark?
Scientifically known as rhincodon typus, whale sharks are the largest shark gracing the Earth’s waters today! In fact, they also hold the title as the largest of any fish alive. However, don’t let the shark title fool you. A whale shark feeds exclusively on plankton and is a friendly face to encounter in the ocean as they travel long distances to find enough food to accommodate their massive dimensions! Whale sharks are estimated to be about 30 feet long on average, weigh upward of 20,000 pounds, and can dive up to depths of 1,000 meters to find food. They embrace habitats in all of the world’s tropical oceans and their spotted white coloration makes them easy to spot upon arrival. They’re often referred to as gentle giants of the water and tolerate snorkelers and divers within their feeding grounds without any aggression. They only swim at an average speed of around 3 mph which allows them plenty of time to filet their plankton catch. Whale sharks inhale massive amounts of water through their mouth before filtering it out their gills, leaving only the plankton behind to be digested. They’re friendly, peaceful ocean-dwelling creatures that are captivating to see up close!
Discover Unforgettable Whale Shark Encounters in Los Cabos
The whale shark migration towards the Sea of Cortez happens between November and March each year. This is the perfect time for travelers to book their Whale Shark Bucketlist private tour with InCabo and get a close look at these impressive and docile marine creatures. Unlike traditional whale watching in Cabo San Lucas, a Whale Shark Bucketlist tour is a chance to not only view whale sharks from a customized vessel but hop in the water and swim alongside them! Snorkeling with a whale shark is a thrilling and unforgettable adventure from start to finish. Alongside your private guide, guests will find they can comfortably take on this whale shark tour in Cabo with confidence. It’s an amazing hands-on way to learn more about the ecology and marine habitats in this area as well.
