Swimming with the whale shark is an activity that only takes place between mid-May and mid-September, dates on which this unique marine species reach the Mexican coast in search of warmer waters where they feed on plankton.

The whale shark discovery tour operates daily between June 1st and September 17th. Whale shark watching is guaranteed! If you don't see whale sharks, you will receive 100% of your money back.

In the summertime hundreds of whale sharks swim to the Caribbean Sea, near Cancun, to stay and feed themselves on plankton. The power boats leave daily from Cancun to get to the whale sharks area between Isla Mujeres and Isla Holbox. Experienced bilingual guides will make your whale shark swimming or watching experience the highlight of your holiday.

You swim as many times as you want with the whale sharks, you will stay in the whale shark watching area for approximately 3 hours.

The professional guides will make sure you feel safe and you have the best view of the whale sharks. Even if you are not such an experienced snorkeler or if you are not so comfortable swimming the guide will make your swim with the whale sharks experience unforgettable, they will make you feel safe, secure and adapt to your level.

You will be taken out on the best boats, all 4 strokes ecological engines, with very experienced captains! They will make your boat ride very pleasant and they will try to spot dolphins, turtles and manta rays on the way.
