Whale Shark Close Encounter in the Galapagos

Our video of the week is a two-fer: a whale shark and hammerheads. Where? The Galapagos, of course – courtesy of our friends at Utila Dive Center.

This video is extra-special because whale shark gets incredibly close. The divers are all on rebreathers so they aren’t exhaling any bubbles to scare away the animals (bonus: you can hear the diver’s shouts of joy as the whale shark comes closer and closer). Sound like fun? Learn more about diving with rebreathers.
