Enjoy Unforgettable Experiences Swimming with Whale Sharks

On this Swimming with Whale Sharks Tour, encounter incredible wildlife in the waters around Cancun. During your 7-day experience, you will embark on boat trips to the area where whale sharks gather to feed on plankton. Then, you will be able to snorkel with the gentle giants. If you are the first one to spot a particular whale shark, you will be able to analyze it and give it a name. In addition to seeing and learning about whale sharks, you could also see mobulas, golden cownose rays, manta rays, and dolphins.

Over the past ten years, Cancun has become the best place to spot whale sharks as they migrate to the region between May and September. The ideal viewing spot is only a one-hour boat ride away from Cancun.
