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 Cancún.
Or, upon request, get here from Merida, or Riviera Maya: Tulum, Playa del Carmen or Playacar.
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.
