Whale Sharks of Grayton Beach Video
September 14, 2009 by admin
Five Whale Sharks appeared just offshore from Grayton Beach, Florida and remained in the local waters for two days. Many of the people chartering the Grayton Beach fishing boats and one group of divers photographed and swam with the whales during the two-day event. A Whale Shark is not a whale (mammal) but is a gentle, non-dangerous, filter-feeding shark that is the largest living fish species.
James Griffith, a local firefighter/diver in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida captured the beautiful underwater video.The large school of bigger fish swimming with the whale shark are cobia.
A special Thanks to James Griffith for his beautiful underwater videography from the charter boat Trigger Happy. Still Photography by Edmond Alexander and Larry Pentel.
What an experience!
