Whale Shark Snorkeling Tour

  • Adventure

Description

In summertime hundreds of whale sharks swim to the Caribbean Sea, near Cancun, to stay and feed themselves on Plankton. The whale shark is the largest fish that exists in the world today, it can grow up to 15 meters in length. The whale shark prefers the warm surface water in areas where there are upwellings of cold water rich in nutrients, like the ones between Isla Mujeres and Holbox island. The Whale Shark Snorkeling Tour operates daily between June 1st and September 17th, Whale sharks are very docile and gentle, do not get scared when they are approaching divers or swimmers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is important to know that we cannot control nature, so we can NOT guarantee the snorkeling with the whale sharks nor the sightings. The whale sharks come to the waters near Cancun to feed on plankton, but when there is no/much plankton there are no/a few whale sharks. We recommend making your reservation between mid-June to August since there is a higher possibility to see whale sharks.
