  • Its not my first time in Mexico but it was with the unbelievable whale shark. I booked this excursion this weekend and it was my best experience ever with an amazing company. They picked up on my hotel and we drove until the north of Cancun to get to the boat. The guide Carlos is the most amazing guide i knew i did lot of excursions around the world. He explained us everything about the activity and the whale sharks. He is very profesional. After 45 min on the boat, we arrived in the national park of the whales sharks and we saw a lot. We had to jump group of 2 people on the water more the guide. My first jump was great and i met 3 whales sharks on the same time. Carlos guided me on the water and i could really enjoyed the swim. The water was so clear. This animal is so gentle and giant. After the swim few jumps. we came back close to a beautiful island and we get a delicious meal. Of course we had drinks all the activity. This day was the best of my life. I recommand this excursion 100. Ask for Carlos. Best guide ever !!!!

  • the explanation is deceiving...the crew and the lunch were great...you are required to wear a life vest or a wetsuit which they rent out....the Viator says 2 hours of snorkeling...but you only get 2 chances in the water each about 5 min ...it is crowded, chaotic...
    glad i did it, but VERY EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT YOU GET
