Whale shark tour - a lifetime experience - no. 1 adventure in cancun!
Do you ever saw people swimming on a whale shark tour next to those majestic creatures and said: I want that? - here is your chance
You jump from whale shark tour boat into the blue, clear ocean, around you are swimming huge whale sharks and giant manta rays, feeding on plancton.
You snorkel next to a whale shark that is hovering vertical, just filtering water. Around you are circling mantas in formation, doing loopings with elegant, small movements of their huge wings.
A lifetime experience, for sure!

Check what my guests say about the whale shark tour
we booked a total of 2 trips. One diving trip and a tour to swim with whale sharks. This was so fantastic you can't describe it in words. You have to experience something like that! Also everything was so nice and personal and they took great care that nobody comes too close to the animals.
An experience that was absolutely worth it! We were three and Tillmann adviced us what we could do. Finally we snorkeled with whale sharks, on the way we met manta rays, turtles and dolphins, had lunch in the water and ended the adventure with a beer at the beach.

After the scheduled pick up in your hotel we head directly to the marina. Your guide will brief you during the ride about day plan, whale shark biology and its habitat.
At the marina you can relax and enjoy a tasty breakfast. Afterwards we board a comfortable speed boat and head to the whale shark zone.
If we spot on the way manta rays, our captain will stop so we can snorkel with these majestic animals.
Once whale sharks are spotted, the main excitement begins, snorkeling with the biggest fish!
To protect the animals we do snorkeling rounds: 2 guests and one guide per boat in the water. We swim nice and calm side by side as guests in the whale shark´s natural habitat.
With respect, observe and enjoy these amazing creatures, keep our distance and don´t disturb their feeding.
Watching whale sharks feeding makes hungry! You can enjoy now sandwiches, fruits, water, soft drinks and on the way back we will stop to snorkel at a tropical reef.

We return to the marina at about 03:30 PM after a day you will always remember with pleasure and the wish to experience it again!
