Divers spot whale shark off West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Divers spotted a whale shark off the coast of West Palm Beach Sunday.

Keith Brock sent FOX 29 the video. He said the shark is approximately 30 to 35 feet long.

Brock and other divers spotted it in an area known as "The Trench," about 30 feet deep in the ocean.

At one point, the divers get up close and personal with the shark as it passes by.

Whale sharks feed primarily of plankton.
