Overview

Earth’s largest fish, whale sharks feed on plankton and are completely harmless to humans. They migrate past the Yucatan between mid-May and mid-September every year, and this tour gives you the chance to swim with them. Enjoy up to three encounters, depending on how many sharks are present—you can expect to see at least one on most trips—in a group no larger than 10. Your package includes lunch but excludes tax.
  • Look for whale sharks in the Caribbean and swim with them when you find them
  • Snorkeling gear included so you can get closer and see more
  • Eat a traditional lunch of lightly flavored ceviche on an Isla Mujeres beach
  • Experience a close-up encounter with a fish up to 12 meters (39 feet) long
