SNORKEL WITH WHALE SHARKS

WHALE SHARK ADVENTURE

Join us for the most overwhelming experience of your lifetime!  Every summer, the world's biggest congregation of whale sharks gathers off the pristine coastal waters of Isla Holbox to feed on the summer plankton bloom.  We'll take you there not just to see this incredible creature, but we'll let you snorkel with them too!  WOW! Don't worry, whale sharks are harmless - they don't even have teeth.  They eat only plankton, much like humpback or gray whales.

Your search for the worlds biggest fish starts from Cancun on a 10 passengers boat and upon the encounter one couple at a time will get the opportunity to snorkel next to Whale Sharks in total spending about an hour snorkeling, viewing, taking pictures and enjoying this unique fish. During this time snacks and drinks will be available onboard.
