Whale shark season in Cancun, where we have several bases! You can watch in this video how amazing is the snorkeling with this incredible animal, one of the biggest species in the seas. They are usually found on the surface, where they can get their food: placton. Is also possible to see them while scuba diving, but in a shallower deep. We organize the excursions from our bases in Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Cozumel and Punta Mita.
Part of this video was recorded with a drone, so you can see from the air how many of them are there… Impossible to count! Thank you very much to Bettina Schade for her amazing edition.
These animals are considered as the biggest specie of the sea. Remember that whales are mammals, so they don’t fit in this category. They don’t eat other animals in spite of having six rows of teeth. They are usually found in the open sea and accompanied by mobulas, smaller than manta rays but flightless! It’s amazing to see them flying over the ocean.
