DESCRIPTION Swim with the Whale Shark
The majestic whale shark visits the Mexican Caribbean every year. Will you dare to meet it?
Get an early start at your selected meeting point at Holbox.
Or, upon request, get here from Merida, or Riviera Maya: Tulum, Playa del Carmen or Cancun.
On the Yucatan and Riviera coasts, this great fish migrates - popular areas are near the waters of Cancun, Holbox, Isla Contoy and Isla Mujeres.
The mix of Caribbean waters with its limits with the Gulf of Mexico causes the flourishment of nutrients, plankton, and life.
Here is the feeding site for this noble animal that allows us a respectful approach.
Of course, it is also common to find giant manta rays or dolphins.
It is an unforgettable adventure, and exciting because along with the captain of your boat, you will look for the whale shark area for the day of your tour.
Depending on the visibility, climate, and sea conditions... the opportunity opens for you to enjoy this experience.
Swim with the great whale shark, quite docile and scary...
So let's care for it as much as possible - be it swimming or simply watching on board.
Enjoy swimming in pairs with the whale shark.
Finally, snorkel in a Caribbean coral reef, and be amazed by the beauty of the crystal clear waters and reef fish.
Enjoy onboard snacks & lunch.
Live this great adventure and unique experience during summer time only, from May to September.
Depends on weather conditions and notices from Harbor Master.
