Isla Mujeres&Whale Shark喂养聚集

Arriving in Isla Mujeres, on a ferry where your luggage is stocked in the open (including your fragile camera equipment), is a bit hectic, but this is Mexico, more particular, laid back Mexico. There’s nothing peaceful about arriving to Cancun from Miami, and looking for a taxi to get us to the ferry harbor.

Neither is arriving inIsla Mujeres.(坎昆东北部8英里的一个小岛屿)并在Hotel'Na Balam'中与我的家庭一起检查。我们不会让我们在8个月前预订的房间,我们无法让彼此相邻的房间;我们的妥协是成年人的一楼,这使得携带沉重的摄像头,以及街道的另一侧,是青少年的上层室,具有魔法词:Wi-Fi。

巡航在光线上

The next morning, we regret this room across the street because the boat that is supposed to take us to our destination every day leaves in front of the hotel's beach. Heavily packed, we still have to wade through the water to get on the boat. We arrive pretty exhausted before we start, but it is worthwhile.

Each day, for the next 4 days, we drive out, 25 miles north of the island, to look for the largest feeding aggregation of whale sharks known. Every summer, hundreds of whale sharks congregate in the deep waters of the Gulf and indulge in feeding on fish eggs, in particular bonito tuna eggs. (There's another renowned aggregation at the more remote Isla Holbox, moving through shallower waters)

我们预订了Bigfish Expeivitions(Andy Murch&Laura McCall)的旅行,并保证了我们在水中最长的时间,他们使用Solo Buceo的船和船长,这是一个基于坎昆的潜水操作员由Rodrigo Friscione Wyssmann运行(新金沙线上一个水下摄影师,因此了解伟大遭遇的需求)。

Their boats leave before 7 am and don’t return before 2 pm. The early start allows you to be a part of the spotting process; no exact location can be given, and the aggregation resurfaces from the deep every day in a 7-mile range, so the first boats out might have some extra miles to cover.

Lifter

我们走了!驱动器出来充满了期望和期待,有很多关于如何在水中表现的问题,允许什么,而不是;如果动物患有我们的存在或只是继续喂食?但它是一个很长的驾驶,一旦土地远离视线,我们都专注于没有生病的遭遇,主要涉及波涛汹涌的海洋。

After an hour, a few boats in the distance catch our eye- are they fishermen or have the鲸鲨已经找到了?我们幸运,还有15分钟,我们肯定会看到巨大的背鳍切片。一个令人难以置信的景象,作为另一个巨人,另一个巨头通过船,嘴巴宽敞,过滤浮游生物和鸡蛋,并让我们无言以对,盯着尾鳍。

此刻在那里进入水潜水服,长脚蹼在我们的脚上,允许没有重量带,相机灯,因为没有闪光灯,它都让我们相当精简,准备好,准备好,准备和渴望。但没有任何东西可以为这个经历做好准备!

Once in the water, under a cloudy sky, the visibility is not that good because of the richness of the water. It makes us 'spyhop': head above the surface, we scan for fins coming our way; once spotted, we fin control, hand on trigger, towards the anticipated direction.

So Happy Together

Then out of the blue, the contours of the biggest fish on earth become clear, coming straight at us, gulping water! And then disappear again before we know it. If you observe whale sharks from the surface, they seem to move slowly, but try to keep up with them in the water, you'll realize their massive body and huge tailfin provide an immense power.

By noon, some whale sharks seem to have enough of the feeding and swim deeper, making room for a manta spectacle:曼塔火车,桶滚动,倒置在表面上游泳......都从深处升起。

For the next few days, this will be the routine: driving out, finding the aggregation, getting in the water, drifting with the animals, finning our lungs out to anticipate an encounter, driving back to the hotel (exhausted and satisfied), sleeping like a baby, and doing it again... A surreal experience my family and I will never forget.

Out of the Blue

一旦我们回家,人们惊讶于我们看到的大数量,但在所有的善良,人们往往会寻找坏事:这是旅游伤害鲨鱼吗?所以我开始质疑我的联系人,因为我也做了现场。乘坐游客的很多船船长被转换为渔民。

他们明白,这些宏伟的动物正在为他们的日常生活造成赚钱,而且比死亡和罚款更加活跃和健康。

喂鲸鲨

船长和潜水运营商非常严格新金沙线上rulesfor these unique encounters and for approaching the animals and a violation could result in fines and even jail, both for the violator and the captain. But the rules are easy to follow and to respect; they are based on common sense and well being for the animals and visitors.
