Private Whale Shark Snorkeling Tour

Price Not Available

Dive into the waters off the coast of Coast to uncover what it's like to swim alongside the world's largest fish. Take advantage of the seasonal migration of whale sharks on this private snorkeling adventure that lets you swim with these gentle giants. Enjoy breakfast on the way and a buffet lunch afterward.

Get picked up from your Riviera Maya or Cancun hotel and head out to your snorkeling site of the day. Typically cruising the waters off Isla Holbox and Isla Contoy, whale sharks come to these warm waters seeking clouds of fresh plankton to feast on. When you reach their feeding site, don a snorkel, mask, and flippers, and get a few snorkeling tips from your guide before leaping in the water.

Swim near these speckle-sided creatures, capable of reaching lengths of up to 39 feet (12 m) and watch for other marine life that might be cruising nearby, including giant manta rays. Take breaks on board to munch on snacks or grab a drink, and then wrap up your day with a ride to Isla Mujeres for a tasty buffet lunch just steps away from the beach.
