Tour Details


Go for a snorkel with Mexico's gentle giants - whale sharks! Cruising the Gulf of Mexico with an expert guide, you'll snorkel with the biggest fish and maybe spot dolphins, manta rays and turtles on this small group snorkeling adventure off the Yucatan coast.

Know More about this tour

Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is one of the few places in the world where you can share the water with the world's largest fish, the whale shark. Your personalized, small group cruise sets out in search of these gentle creatures for a snorkeling experience you'll never forget.

After having spotted a whale shark, you'll have the chance to jump in the water and snorkel alongside it (conditions permitting) for a wildlife encounter few people ever experience. Found in the world's tropical and warm-temperate oceans, the majestic whale shark glides peacefully through the clear waters along the Yucatan coast close to Isla Holbox, Isla Mujeres and Isla Contoy during the summer months, feeding on the microscopic plankton which thrives in this environment.

You'll then have time to have lunch, relax and unwind off the coast of Isla Mujeres, in Playa Norte, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Be on the lookout for dolphins and manta rays as you enjoy the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

A biologist/naturalist will be onboard throughout the day to answer questions you may have about whale sharks or any other wildlife you'll see during your adventure. They will also provide you with information on how to interact with the local marine life to ensure you have a safe and fun experience.

With a maximum of 10 participants, the Mexican Whale Shark Snorkel Adventure is an intimate experience which will leave you with memories lasting a lifetime.

  • Life changing. Worth every penny. Guide was the best. Kids loved it. Very special

  • The activity was amazing, the guides were not. They rushed us so we could not rent our own go pro. Which meant they had to record our video. They couldn’t locate the video after purchasing and wanted to give us a partial refund. Horrible!

  • Best experience of my life! The tour guides were wonderful and very concerned for the well being of the whales, ensuring that we are respecting them while swimming with them. Very educational program as well.

  • What an amazing excursion!!!!! Our tour guid Denise was very informative. My only complaint was I wished the waters had been less choppy that day. Still Highly Recommended!!!!!!
