The crystal clear water in Boracay, Philippines, is a great setting for an impromptu photo shoot of jumping pics! Here are a few of the photos we took on Boracay’s White Beach (at Station Two) – jumping photos in beautiful Boracay. Enjoy!
The clear water reminded me of the Caribbean. Some islands in Thailand are also this beautiful. So much fun!
I took fun jumping pics in beautiful Boracay as well as nearly every country I visited. Check out the jumping pics I’ve posted so far.
Also, I’ve created JumpingATW on Instagram to feature the best jumping photos from around the world. These aren’t just my jumping photos – it’s from travelers all around the world. Join the adventure!
Swimming with Whale Sharks!
Imagine snorkeling with massive Whale Sharks! They’re the largest fish in the sea, and they migrate right through The Philippines annually. It provided a perfect opportunity to not only see whale sharks up close, but get in the water and actually swim and snorkel with them. Wow. It was certainly one of the highlights of my trip!
How big are Whale Sharks? Huge. The first one we saw while snorkeling was about 20 feet long; they can grow to the size of a school bus! Average size is more than 30-feet and 20,000 pounds. They can grow much larger; a whale shark caught near Taiwan in 1994 was 79,000 pounds, and that’s not even the largest ever! (catching whale sharks is now banned)
Is a Whale Shark a Whale or a Shark? It’s a Shark. It’s a whale-sized shark. Rhincodon typus – the largest fish species still around (I just learned the term is “extant” – the opposite of extinct)
