Whale Shark Encounter

Location: Isla Mujeres
US$189

Swim with the largest fish in the world!

Every year during the summer months June - September, whale sharks migrate to the warm nourished waters around Isla Contoy in the north of the Yucatan peninsula. This snorkeling tour is fully operated by ScubaCaribe. Sighting is guaranteed!*

In the early hours of the morning the expedition begins, we go to your hotel in an air-conditioned van to take you to an exclusive port near Cancun, where we will enter the boat and drive to Isla Contoy, this is where we will begin the search for these magnificent creatures. As soon as we see them, we prepare our team and the captain will ask you to jump as a couple, only two people at a time to intervene as little as possible in your environment, from this moment on, let yourself be surprised by nature.

After an exciting adventure, we head towards Isla Mujeres, where we anchor the boat in the crystal clear turquoise waters in front of the famous North Beach. Delight in the marine life, the beautiful views of the turquoise sea and a delicious local aperitif with a fish ceviche and a light lunch.

Early in the afternoon, we returned to Cancun and later continued by land to Playa del Carmen for guests from that area.

ScubaCaribe operates this tour in its entirety, who holds all the licenses and guarantees the sighting, otherwise, you can join the expedition for the second time if you did not see any whale sharks at the beginning.

Do not miss this special event happening every year in the summer months near Isla Contoy/ Mexico, where we will find the world's largest concentration of whale sharks.
