It is rare enough to see a whale shark in the waters beyond Cabo San Lucas, but to spot one inside the Marina, might sound unreal.

The 20-foot whale shark sighting happend in the back of the harbor. It was first confused with a Great White Shark than with Mako, but then the truth came out, it was actually a Whale Shark – the largest fish on the planet.

Whale sharks, which can measure to about 40 feet, are the world’s largest fish species. The docile plankton-eaters are also mysterious in that little is known about their migration habits.

They’re sometimes spotted in the Sea of Cortez, between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz, but not inside harbors, where water quality is diminished.
