Mexico Whale Shark Trips


Swim with Whale Sharks in Isla Mujeres, Mexico!

July 15-220, 2022
July 20-25, 2022

Join us in tropical Isla Mujeres, Mexico, to snorkel alongside the largest fish in the world - the whale shark! 

Each July, these gentle giants gather in the clear warm waters surrounding Isla Mujeres (offshore Cancun) to feed on tiny planktonic creatures along the continental shelf. This gathering has been noted as the largest whale shark aggregation in the world! These huge creatures are joined by mantas, mobula rays, turtles, and even sailfish; creating one of nature’s greatest spectacles!

During these trips, we maximize your swim time in the water to create the best wildlife interactions possible. We use multiple boats, ensuring your group onboard is small. We arrive at the whale shark location earlier, and stay longer, than most single-day snorkel tours operate. Because of this, we are able to offer countless intimate interactions with these massive, yet harmless, creatures. Additionally, since we are not diving, NO scuba certification is required!

We look forward to hearing from you!
