Join us for a once-in-lifetime swim with the amazing Whaleshark, the world’s largest fish! Very little is known about the migratory patterns of the majestic Whaleshark, but every summer, large numbers of them congregate in the nutrient-rich waters off the coast of the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico to feed on microscopic plankton. Though great in size, they pose no threat to humans, giving us the unique opportunity to peacefully swim along side these incredible animals and view them in their natural habitat. The Whalesharks are in the waters between and around Isla Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Isla Contoy and Cancun from early June to mid-September, so be sure to make this trip a part of your summer vacation! No diving certification is required as it is a snorkeling-only trip, so it is great for the whole family as well!
Price $185 USD, Includes transportation, all snorkel equipment, a light lunch, water, as well as a wetsuit or a life vest (required).
Prerequisites: Basic snorkeling experience, open to all ages!
