A boat-full of unsuspecting tourists got more than they bargained for when a huge whale shark was spotted lurking beneath their whale watching vessel.

The enormous whale shark – the world’s largest species of fish – dwarfs the boat as it floats just below the surface in the crystal clear water of Ningaloo Reef about 6km off the coast of Western Australia.

The extraordinary image was taken by Tom Cannon, 26, earlier this week and captured the gaping abyss of the whale shark’s giant mouth.
