Swim with Whale Sharks 7 hours

We were the first organization providing this Whale Shark Adventure tour. Nowadays, we have more than 18 years of experience running this tour.

During the whale shark season (May to September) there´s a daily opportunity to participate in this great adventure! We will depart from Cancun, Tulum or Playa del Carmen (see pick up details) to the water surroundings of Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox, exactly where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico. This is where the whale sharks feed themselves with plankton. You will have the remarkable opportunity to snorkel and swim with this friendly giant, in a beautiful area with a bustling sea life.

The Whale Shark Adventure tour will be supervised by a professional and certificated guide. All our guides are naturalists and biologists. They will tell you a lot about the whale sharks and their environment. The boats which we will use for the tour have a limit of 10 people.
