We thought yesterday morning was amazing when we saw the pregnant female, Blue Steel and we thought there was no way it could get any better. We could not have been more wrong. As far as we are aware, we have now seen the largest shark in Guadalupe! This shark dwarfed all the other sharks swimming around. At about 1530 a massive 10-12 meter whale shark decided to grace us with its presence. Never in my life did I expect everyone aboard to not care about 5 white sharks around the cages. All anyone wanted to see and brag about was seeing the whale shark. It was amazing to see this enormous whale shark hanging out with the famous great whites. Today has been great as well, but nothing compares to the whale shark yesterday. Andy, Sad Face, Blue Steel, and Neptune have been hanging around going after the boat. We had 2 full breaches this morning. It has been a great morning so far. So much activity, it is great.
