Wow, I can feel the whale's sigh of relief. So sad that the rope was on it. Must have been on for a long time. It has marks on from the rope. Good the diver was there.
I'm sure the diver was thrilled to see the shark and having the honor to help it will be one of the best experiences in his life.
Hi Rita- this was recorded in waters off Socorro Island, part of the Revillagigedo Archipelago, 200 miles off the coast of Mexico.Whale sharks are incredibly docile fish and pose little threat to humans. They are the largest living fish on the planet and because they have long lives (estimates say they live over 70), mature late not producing offspring until over 30, and give birth to relatively few offspring during their lifetime.
If only folks realized what they are doing to our Marine life when they throw things in the water. I do hope he was able to bring the rope up with him so no other marine life could get caught in it..I applaud him for his courage to do this for the Whale Shark.. Prayers the wounds heal and there are no after effects from this rope..
Gabe and I were so very lucky to see incredible sea life and via our video's you got to enjoy them with us.Whale sharks pose little threat to people, the diver had to be an incredible swimmer to catch up to it. They are huge but do move quickly.Yes, in another video they show the other divers that grabbed the rope before it sank. Hopefully the salt water healed it's wounds.
