Swim with Whale Sharks from Playa del Carmen or Cancun

1. Swim with Whale Sharks from Playa del Carmen or Cancun

From early June to mid-September whale shark sighting is guaranteed or you’ll get a refund! Hundreds of whale sharks visit the coastal area near Cancun to feed on plankton. Travel by powerboat from Cancun to a sighting area between Isla Mujeres and Isla Holbox. Swim with the whale sharks as many times as you wish during a 3-hour stay in the area. Professional guides will make sure you feel safe and you have the best possible views of the whale sharks – even if you are not an experienced snorkeler. Be on the lookout for dolphins, turtles and manta rays on the way. You can stop to snorkel with manta rays as well.

Truly magnificent !!! Supervision at the top of the top. Perfectly French speaking guide !! The guides know how to reassure us and help us to make us live the best of times. We were able to see around thirty whale sharks! Swimming with them is truly an extraordinary experience! We recommend it with your eyes closed !!!
