Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to snorkel with whale sharks, the world’s biggest fish! These 30-foot-long creatures will leave you breathless. Our comfortable boats will take you just north of Cancun to the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, where the world’s largest whale shark population is found.
These docile giants, who migrate to the area between May 15 and September 15, can reach up to 40 feet in length and have huge, box-like mouths to trap plants and plankton.
Accompanied by your professional guide, you’ll swim alongside these incredible fishes and be among the privileged few to observe these unique ocean dwellers in their natural habitat.
As a bonus, a brief stop is scheduled for snorkelling on the way back.
Wrap up the day with a delicious lunch at a beachfront restaurant overlooking the Caribbean’s aquamarine waters.
