Mexican Whale Shark Snorkel Adventure

  • Location: Cancun, Mexico
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3467WHALE

Go for a snorkel with Mexico's gentle giants - whale sharks! Cruising the Gulf of Mexico with an expert guide, you'll snorkel with the biggest fish and maybe spot dolphins, manta rays and turtles on this small group snorkeling adventure off the Yucatan coast.

Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is one of the few places in the world where you can share the water with the world's largest fish, the whale shark. Your personalized, small group cruise sets out in search of these gentle creatures for a snorkeling experience you'll never forget.

After having spotted a whale shark, you'll have the chance to jump in the water and snorkel alongside it (conditions permitting) for a wildlife encounter few people ever experience. Found in the world's tropical and warm-temperate oceans, the majestic whale shark glides peacefully through the clear waters along the Yucatan coast during the summer months, feeding on the microscopic plankton which thrives in this environment.

You'll then have time to have lunch, relax and unwind off the coast of Isla Mujeres, in Playa Norte, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Be on the lookout for dolphins and manta rays as you enjoy the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The Yucatan coast is also known for its abundance of bird species, including the brightly colored native flamingos.

A biologist/naturalist will be onboard throughout the day to answer questions you may have about whale sharks or any other wildlife you'll see during your adventure. They will also provide you with information on how to interact with the local marine life to ensure you have a safe and fun experience.

With a maximum of 10 participants, the Mexican Whale Shark Snorkel Adventure is an intimate experience which will leave you with memories lasting a lifetime.

Sightings of whale sharks are guaranteed. In the unlikely event that there are no whale shark sightings on your cruise, you are able to take the cruise again on the following day free of charge. (This only applies during the months of June, July and August).

This was an incredible!! The bus was air conditioned, comfortable. Our guide Karen and the drivers were so friendly. The ceviche/sandwiches by the beach at the end were delicious. Would definitely try this again! Warning - bring motion sickness pills even if you've never experienced any before.
