The world's largest fish, the whale shark, is an intriguing, elusive, highly migratory creature that occasionally makes its way to a handful of shorelines. As you might imagine, swimming with one of these rare oceanic beasts makes for a thoroughly memorable experience. The coastline of Kenya has seen a striking increase in whale sharks over the years, meaning you're almost guaranteed a glimpse when visiting. On top of that, Kenya's picturesque south coast plays host to whale shark satellite tagging expeditions between February and April every year. Whale sharks come up to the surface, meaning snorkelers and divers can actually swim up close with these gentle animals while the local scientists go about the crucial tagging process. It's an unforgettable adventure that supports conservation efforts in Africa.
