We are sure you know, that you can’t swim with just any kind of jellyfish. This sea flowers are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea, but being translucent, they often blend right into the ocean colours.
Maybe you don't know that every jellyfish is poisonous, it's just some of them can’t penetrate the human skin , so their poison is worthless.
Stings of majority would be mildly painful; some a bit more and some would be deadly. But luckily for us, there are spots on this Planet where dwells species of jellyfish that wont hurt you at all.
You can find the harmless (not so harmless for little fishies swimming around) common jelly or moon jelly on the coasts of North America and Europe. Even though it is in the highest numbers of all the jellyfishes, you will have to take a snorkelling day and swim around a bit.
Good spot to search for the moon jelly is Netherlands and Belgium. If you ever take a trip to Amsterdam, you can go a bit more north and drive to Den Helder where you’ll find a bay where moon jellies are very common, or around Belgian Antwerp. It's good to know, that the moon jellyfish prefers temperate water that falls between 48 and 66 degrees Fahrenheit (8 – 19 ºC).
Near the coast of northern Japan experienced divers can search for big almost 5 feet large jellyfish, but if your not in the area, you can try your in Southeast Asia, the Gulf of Mexico, the Black Sea and the North Sea.
Yes, there is Jellyfish Lake. It’s other name Lake Palau, located in island country of Palau (near Philippines and Indonesia) - on Eil Malk Island.
Those that took this funky dip, says that this is a once in a lifetime experience. You literally swim with millions of harmless sea mushroom jellies that groove slowly around you and really don’t care about you being there. You can easily become one with the nature and enjoy.
