Swim with Whale Sharks in Cancun: A Huge Adventure!

There are very few places in the world where you can swim with whale sharks and we are delighted that these magnificent creatures call the waters around Cancun "home" from May to September. Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the sea, gentle giants that congregate in the warm, algae-rich waters close to Cancun each year for the summer months. It is still a mystery where they come from and where they go, but we're always ready to welcome them with open fins.

Your Cancun whale shark tour takes you to the open sea, your expert captain will be on the lookout for these magnificent creatures and will find the very best place for your interaction. With your mask and fins in place, you'll jump in the water for an experience that will change your life! Snorkeling with whale sharks in Cancun gets you up close and personal with animals that can grow up to 12 meters long, that's a lot of fish to keep up with! 

This whale shark tour in Cancun includes round-trip land and sea transportation, snorkeling gear, a light breakfast, soft drinks and bottled water, and lunch with beer (after your adventure of course), all you need for a perfect day immersed in nature.
