Whale Shark! A Rare Sighting in Galápagos

Guests exploring the Galápagos Islands aboard National Geographic Endeavour had the surprise of a lifetime in a rare encounter with the world’s largest fish—a whale shark. They’d just climbed into Zodiacs to visit one of our favorite wildlife-rich snorkeling spots when the whale shark was spotted. Our naturalist Tommy Acosta last saw one of these magnificent, bus-sized fish about seven years ago.

Our onboard video chronicler also managed to capture the encounter on film.
