Several people captured video of a giant whale shark off the coast of Palm Beach.
Scuba diver Greg Franco took to Instagram over the weekend to post video of the encounter near the Breakers.
A woman also captured video of the shark off the coast of the Breakers Hotel, noting that it was longer than the 22-foot boat she was in.
Whale sharks, despite having the title of "shark", are of no danger to humans. But their size can be awe-inspiring. The longest whale shark on record was 41.5 feet.
This breed of shark is known to be found in the open waters of tropical oceans. You'll rarely find one in waters that dip below 70 degrees.
