Live a once in a lifetime experience swimming with the WORLD BIGGEST SHARK! Definitely, this is a unique adventure, near Contoy Island we will find the largest congregation of Whale Shark in the world, making this area the Whale Shark capital of the world.
The Whale Shark season in Cancun from June to September.
The Whale Shark Tour leaves every day during the season from the all-new private marina located at the Punta Sam Ferry Terminal, in 33 ft boats with a maximum capacity of 10 passengers, (this is the- largest length permitted in the Whale Shark area for security reasons.) One bilingual guide and a- Captain will be part of your crew, the use of a life vest is mandatory, and our guides are certified- for this specific activity.
We have pickups in every hotel in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum area, then we will head to the Marina, where you will have coffee & bread, and before boarding, you will be introduced to your crew and a short briefing instructions will be given to you, this to perform this activity in the safest way possible and also to follow the rules for the protection and conservation of this marvelous creature, this way we can guarantee that this will be one of the best experiences of your life. Once in the boat, life vests and full snorkeling gear will be provided.
After the instruction briefing, we will board the boats to leave at 07:45 am and navigate for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to the whale shark area north of Contoy Island. The adventure starts right here, where we start searching for the whale shark in a vast area of 120,000 hectares of water, once we find them, the swimming will take place; from 2 to 3 immersions per person, always with 2 people plus the guide in the water.
But the adventure does not end here, after swimming with the whale sharks, we will have a final stop in beautiful Playa Norte beach in Isla Mujeres, which is simply the nicest beach of the island, here we will spend about an hour for you to relax on the beach or do some more snorkeling. Soft drinks and snacks will be served on board! Then we go back to our Marina in Cancun around 1:30 to take you back to your hotels.
