You go Kenya - well done, put your foot down - what the hell must tourists swim with them for - there are plenty of other things for these people to do, explore the scenery etc. But we humans must always interfere with what we shouldn't be interfering with!

These are huge and I have no idea how they could survive being penned up.
They do not mind divers. I want to dive with one someday in their territory.
