Whale Sharks near Isla Mujeres, Mexico

These Whale Sharks are 20 miles north of Isla Mujeres. Isla is just north of Cancun Mexico.

75+ sharks where feeding while we snorkeled among them in 65 feet of deep blue water.

A lot of restrictions; as no touching, only two people in the water per boat with a guide, 
and no flash photography.
Picture shot with ambient light (Canon 5D, 16-35 mm, ISO 400 f8)
A rare sight! The guide said they cannot remember this many whale sharks in one place before.
