An aerial drone captures whale sharks, mantas and people off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The footage was shot with a quadcopter and posted to Vimeo by Tom Gruber, whose website describes him as a is “a researcher, designer, and serial entrepreneur, with a focus on technology to augment human intelligence.” He was the CTO and VP of Design for Siri, Apple’s intelligent assistant. He’s been capturing some great video of wildlife with his drone and we hope he keeps it up because the results are spectacular!
Many diving sites offer the “swim with whale shark” experience. I’ve done most of my dive trips with San Diego Shark Diving Expeditions. Here’s a link to their Whale Shark diving trip at Isla Mujeres. And if you go out there take your drone with you and send us some great footage!
