Swimming with "Whale" Sharks!
On the way to Wizard World Atlanta, I was happily waylaid to go swimming with 4, 30foot whale sharks. I have to tell you, it was unimaginably incredible. At least after I got use to the other sharks in the tank... That's right! The swim also included numerous Sting Ray, Manta Ray, Hammerheads, Sand Tiger Sharks, Black Tip Reef Sharks (my nemesis) , Sawtooth Fish, and so much more. An unforgettable experience.
Part of my on-going pursuit to enjoy whatever city I'm in! :-)
Here is a video of the adventure featuring Matt Driscoll, myself and two nice people we'd never met before, celebrating a birthday!
If you are ever in Atlanta, the Georgia Aquarium is one of only three aquariums in the United States that even HAVE Whale Sharks. So, even if you don't want to go into the water, visit the aquarium anyway. It's a wonderful place. For example, when I wasn't in the water, I was glued to the otter tank and petting baby sting ray and sharks!
And now to the tape:
