Swim with the Whale Sharks
An Amazing Experience!
The Mexican Caribbean is one of the few places where the whale sharks are close enough to shore to make boat trips possible to see them. The season begins on May 15th and ends on September 15th.
We start the morning early to prepare for our day’s adventure and return mid-day depending upon the distance we need to travel. The whale shark area is 1 to 1 ½ hours away from Isla Mujeres and approximately 60 square miles, so it may take time to locate them.
Only swimming and snorkeling are allowed, no diving. The permits allow a maximum of 10 persons plus the crew on board. Our experienced captain and crew have the required whale shark certifications and marine biology courses and are fully bilingual.
We provide a light breakfast, lunch, refreshments and bottled water, all the snorkel gear, life vests and wetsuits. After swimming with the whale sharks we head back to Isla and visit a nice shallow reef for snorkeling (if time permits) while the captain prepares a fresh ceviche.
