Additional comments:
We swam with this whale shark numerous times. It seemed to mostly have no reaction and continued swimming in a northerly direction. A couple of times it descended until we couldn't see it but it later returned to near the surface. Three of us were lucky to be able to swim with it once for about 10 minutes. We only stopped because the guide told us to!
