    Alia and the whale shark


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     1lornie and his nine-year-old granddaughter Alia went diving in Isla de las Mujeres in Mexico, on July 2. While in the water, Mueller saw a whale shark swim by. They were on an excursion to specifically see whale sharks. "My granddaughter was somewhat afraid as it was so large in comparison to her. It took some convincing for her to dive down as no one else was,” he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    As an avid scuba diver this is one encounter I have never had, but now it is off of my bucket list even though one can only snorkel with them. We were with the whale sharks at Isla de las Mujeres. The girl diving down in the video is my 9 year old granddaughter Alia Noor. It took some convincing after she saw their size. We were very fortunate and saw 4 manta rays feeding amongst the 15 whale sharks.
