Cancún & Tulum: Private Swim with Whale Sharks Excursion

6. Cancún & Tulum: Private Swim with Whale Sharks Excursion

Enjoy a light breakfast before you prepare for a private boat safari. On your way to the protected whale shark area, look out for dolphins, sea turtles and enormous manta rays. Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world, and you can easily spot them this time of year because they are hungry. Their primary meal, plankton, can be found near the surface. After an hour or two, be rewarded with the first views of the whale sharks. Observe them from the boat and jump into the water to swim with them up close, if you are feeling brave. With your fins and mask, snorkel alongside the whale shark for a real rush of adrenaline. After the whale shark activity, get your gear and snorkel at the coral reef to see some tropical fish. Enjoy a delicious Caribbean-style lunch while lounging in the water at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

What people are saying about Hotel Zone

great snorkeling experience crystal blue waters saw many fish under water people saw a sting ray which I missed :/ saw some statues under water tequila on deck and great staff members they were friendly and helpful definitely recommended and you must be there on time or they will leave the you behind

Well organized, even if you have to plan more time. We had to wait an hour on a water platform for our boat to bring us back. The figures are super exciting and the water is shallow. Very good price-performance ratio.

Our guide was amazing! He had food for the fish, he went out of his way to show us 2 alligators. 7/10 would absolutely do again even tho I hate and fear fish.

Very satisfied.The very good guide and the captain hawkeye !! He knew the right time to dive and be face to face with the Bravi whale shark

Amazing experience and flexible to let us to the reef till the next boat leave and to change the date I book
