Whale Shark Snorkel Excursions & Tours
Our whale shark snorkeling excursion and tour takes you swimming alongside the largest fish in the sea. Whale sharks are gentle giants that swim very slowly and calmly at the surface allowing snorkelers on excursion to keep pace with them.
We organize our snorkeling excursion to these impressive whale sharks several times a week, from mid May to mid September when they come to feed on the plankton between Isla Mujeres and Holbox! Although a whale sharks have very imposing mouths no need to worry because they mainly use it to filter plankton which are microscopic plants and animals.
These kind creatures only visit this part of Mexico during a couple of months a year but when they do they come in great numbers making it one of the most famous whale shark get togethers in the world. Join the meeting with one or our tours! We can assure you that it will be an unforgettable experience. DON’T MISS OUT ON THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!
Frequency: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from early June to mid-September
