Hello, We are a non-profit Shark Preservation Org (www.Iemanya.org & www.AdoptaShark.com). We are designating 2010 as the Year of the Whale Shark. Someone sent me your Whale Shark photo and we are interested in using it in our 2010 calendar, and in some of our promos. Can we get your permission to do so? If so, we will need a hi-rez pdf of the Whale Shark, Name, Company, and website which we should attribute the credits. And we will need written permission from you and your complete contact information.
Thank you for your participation in helping us to preserve our oceans and this magnificent animal.

I love to visit aquariums. I don't get to often, but they sure are fun!

This is definitely a whale shark, I just got back from diving with them there at the aquarium :) The biggest one there is a 22 ft female. I can't tell if this is her or it's one of the smaller ones because of the perspective, but great shot!

No, they offer a program that lets certified divers dive with them. As you can imagine, there's a long waiting list. They only allow 6 divers a day in the tank. And yes, it was amazing :)

:wow: How long did you wait? I bet it cost a lot too. I'm sure the cost and the wait were worth it to enjoy an such a wonderful experience.

You do have to book it pretty far in advance. I think we booked it at least 4 or 5, maybe 6 mo before, and it was semi-pricey but definitely worth it. If you ever get a chance, go for it. You can also snorkel, but that's not as fun.

Yep, definitely a whale shark, although judging by the size of the jacks/trevally underneath it maybe not a fullsized one. Very nice photo.

Whale sharks are amazing creatures that shouldn't be kept in aquariums at all. Doing so drastically reduces there lifespan. If anyone wants to see them please try to do it in the wild.
