Man in Florida rides whale shark

FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Florida boater caught the ride of a lifetime on a very large fish.

"The whale shark basically came right to us, yeah, it was as curious about us as we were about it," said James Bostwick. "That fish was as big as a boat, 30 feet long."

You see Jamie Bostwick swimming with a whale shark in the video above, something that's been on his bucket list.

The whale shark is not a threat to humans, but experts warn we can hurt them with too much contact.
