Whale Shark spotted on Kauai Snorkeling Trip

A Whale Shark was spotted on one of the Na Pali snorkel tours on Kauai just a couple weeks ago. This is not very common, but for those who saw it, an unforgettable experience. If you are looking to see a whale shark on Kauai, you will have to get into deeper water and snorkel or dive often, even then, you may not be lucky enough to encounter one of these gentle giants...Luckily there is plenty of other fascinating undersea wildlife to see if you snorkel on Kauai like: Pacific Green Sea Turtles, Moray Eels, Parrotfish, Wrasses, Surgeonfish, Butterflyfish and even Manta Rays.

Did you know that the Whale Shark is considered to be the biggest fish in the sea? That's right! A Whale Shark is about as big as a bus! Don't worry though, Whale Sharks are graceful filter feeders, so it unlikely that one would gobble you up. Want to learn more fun fish facts, you can purchase FUN FISH FACTS for KIDS from the Amazon Kindle Store.
