Whale Shark Warrior Sun Suit

I absolutely LOVE my sun suit! It's incredibly comfortable, fits me perfectly, and helps to protect my skin from the sun and coral when diving! I'm a size 8-10 in jeans and a M/L in tops and I chose the XL to ensure it would fit my torso as I'm 5'3" but my torso is longer and it was the perfect fit! I wore my sun suit on my dive with sharks in open water (NO CAGE) and it was AMAZING! You can wear your sun suit by itself or with a swimsuit underneath. I personally work my swimsuit under mine because I wanted to be able to strip my suit off and dry off after diving so I wouldn't be as cold on the ride back with the wind blowing, but it wasn't necessary.

Amazing! Would Buy Again

I am truly amazed with my purchase of the Whale Shark Sun Suit. First of all, whale sharks are my favorite animal and I was really happy finding a product that helps support causes I’m passionate about, specifically marine causes. I’m also very happy with the fact that the sun suit is made from water bottles, so I know what I purchase is truly helping the environment. I was out in the Florida sun ALL day with this sun suit on and it is truly SPF 50+. It is also very comfortable and fits well (the sleeves are a little long for me but that’s because I’m short). I love being able to zip up the product myself without any help (again I’m short and my arms don’t reach very far). Overall this is an amazing product, I cannot wait to purchase more products from Waterlust, and have even actively telling my friends and family about how great my experience with Waterlust has been.

Whale Shark Sun Suit + Leggings combo

I decided to buy the sun suit and leggings as a matching set and holy cow I was not disappointed!! I went with a medium (I'm 5'1", 150lbs) and it fits great and looks beautiful! I was looking for a dive skin and I do wish that Waterlust made a sun skin with coverage for the legs, but I think that just wearing the leggings over the sunsuit will work about as well. The neck for the sunsuit does feel a little tight but I'm hoping that it lossens up a bit underwater. Definitely going to be recommending this company to all of my dive buddies 🤩 thanks for making comfortable, stylish, and sustainable products y'all 💙

Love my new Whale Shark Warrior Sun Suit

I have purchased a lot of gear from Waterlust over the years, and have been pleased with it all - but the Whale Shark Warrior Sun Suit is my new favorite! The quality and fit are superb. I can’t wait to test it out on an upcoming SCUBA trip!

Love it!

I love this swimsuit! The fit and cut is perfect, the material is so soft, it is well made and the pattern is striking. Thank you Waterlust for a wonderful product that also supports our treasures in the sea!
For reference, I'm 5 8, a little curvy', ahem... 155lbs (I blame COVID) ;) and the medium fit perfectly with plenty of stretch in some areas that need gym intervention!

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE LARGEST FISH IN THE SEA,THE WHALE SHARK (RHINCODON TYPUS)

Marine Megafauna Foundation LogoWhale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within. Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance.

Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong. The Marine Megafauna Foundation is one group that is helping to shed light on the population structure, migratory patterns and the conservation requirements of these threatened sharks. Created in 2009, they aim to research, protect and conserve the large populations of marine megafauna (large marine species) found along the Mozambican coastline. Almost all whale sharks encountered by divers are juveniles and most are males. Where the school-bus-sized mature sharks swim, what they eat and where the females give birth has long been a mystery, however their team is now very close to making these discoveries. 10% of profits from your purchase will go to the Marine Megafauna Foundation for satellite tags that are needed to track the movements of these large female whale sharks.
