Whale Shark Tour Cancun: The Biggest Adventure of Your Life

Swim with whale sharks in Cancun in this extraordinary adventure at sea. This is a seasonal tour in Cancun and worth a trip just for the experience of swimming with the biggest fish in the ocean. From June to September the whale sharks swim in Cancun for the warm waters rich in their favorite snacks, which thankfully, are microscopic plankton and not human size.

The locals call them “Dominos” for their beautiful spotted skin and our trusted captains know where to find them. Whale sharks can grow up to 12 meters in length, that's bigger than a lot of boats! The experience is limited to very few people per day in order to preserve and protect the areas around Isla Contoy, Isla Holbox and Isla Mujeres where the whale sharks swim.

Meet your friendly expert guide at the dock and set sail in a small boat with maximum 10 passengers, this is a totally VIP unique experience. Your captain and crew are passionate about bringing you the best whale shark experience in Cancun while conserving the ocean and allowing these majestic creatures to swim in peace. No touching of the whale sharks is the number one rule!

Once you reach the gathering place, you’ll put on your snorkel mask and fins and leap into the water in pairs when the guide says GO. You’ll snorkel with whale sharks and be absolutely AWED and wowed by their beauty and size. A truly once in a lifetime adventure.

After your out of this world whale shark experience, you’ll head to the turquoise waters around Isla Mujeres and enjoy a light lunch and refreshments. This is one of our personal FAVE local experiences in Cancun, something you can’t do anywhere else, a MUST do Cancun tour to swim with whale sharks!

The hosts were professional and courteous and spoke good English. It was pretty stress free. I was a little anxious with the pick up at night but pleasantly surprised how smooth the process was.

ANGALON CARTER - 3 months ago Jolly Roger

THE FOOD WAS GOOD, BUT WE COULD NOT HEAR THE REENACTMENT @ ALL. I BELIEVE THE AUDIO WAS SUBPAR SO EVERYONE NEAR US WAS JUST DRINKING AND TALKING AND LEARNING ABOUT WHERE WE WERE FROM. I REALLY TRIED TO KEEP UP WITH WHAT THE ACTOR'S WERE SAYING BUT IT WAS NOT CLEAR AT ALL. BUT THE ACTOR'S WERE VERY GOOD AND I FELT LIKE I WAS WATCHING A SILENT MOVIE.

Excellent service from staff at airport upon arrival. On time and professional. Attentive and knowledgeable. The return experience was just as pleasant. Very competitive prices also when compared to Hotel shuttle service. Got us to the airport on time and we had the shuttle to ourselves which is a HUGE PLUS! Will definitely use them again!
