Whale Shark Adventure from Cancun

Explore the environment in search of the peaceful giant Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus). These are the largest fish in the world, they migrate each year to the northeast of the Yucatan Peninsula, between May and September. 

A continental breakfast starts off the tour, followed by a briefing about these astonishing Whale sharks. Take this opportunity to sail to the sites by the Mesoamerican Barrier reef. Here you can locate these magnificent sea creators, where they are likely to hang out.

Snorkel the flourishing marine ecosystem while getting up close with majestic sea mammoths, who have been known to grow as large as a van.

Voyage onto a reef snorkeling adventure, explore the fascinating marine fauna that lives together with hundreds of species, surrounding Isla Mujeres.

Our main goal is to swim with whale sharks however you should know that whale sharks are not in a cage or in captivity, they are in the wild, so… we may see a lot of them, very few of them or even, in some cases (2% of times) none. We are on an EXPEDITION!!!

It is required by conservation law to have at least 5 or more whale sharks in the area, for swimming with the wildlife to commence.
