Trip information

Swim with Whale Sharks


Swim with Whale Sharks! This swim & snorkeling tour is something you can only do between mid-May to mid-September every year. During this time, this unique marine species reaches the Mexican coast in search of warmer waters to feed themselves. You will have the remarkable opportunity to snorkel and swim with this friendly giant in a beautiful area with a bustling sea life.

This whale shark day tour is supervised by a professional and certified guide, while you enjoy the company of these gentle giants of the deep blue. With 20-47 feet bodies, they only eat phytoplankton and swim slowly through the sea. One of the best places in the world to see whale sharks is off the Riviera Maya in Mexico.

What to expect

You will leave in a fast boat from Port Juarez in the early morning to go ahead to the designated area.  Along the way, you will also have the chance to see turtles and dolphins. Enjoy approximately 3 hours of swimming in the warm waters and snorkeling with whale sharks and rays in their natural environment. 

Although we offer the whale shark day tour in Cancun from mid-May to Mid-September, we strongly recommend to make your reservation between mid-June to August for a higher possibility to see whale sharks. After your adventure day, dive into a delicious lunch of fresh ceviche.
