Full description
Get the ultimate adrenaline thrill in the Mexican Caribbean on a 6-hour whale shark snorkel tour from Cancun and swim and snorkel with the gentle giants in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, transfer to the marina to board a boat. Enjoy complimentary food and beverages on the way to the snorkel site, where you will put on your snorkeling gear and get a safety briefing on what to expect in the sea.

Jump into the ocean to snorkel with the world’s biggest fish as you come face-to-face with the whale sharks. Some adult specimens can measure up to 13 meters in length, though accounts of individuals of up to 18 meters have been recorded. Swim with the whale sharks for about 2 hours for a truly unique experience.

Then, go to Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres to enjoy a delicious lunch. Board your boat for the return transfer to the marina, where a vehicle will be waiting to take you back to your hotel. Note, that the whale shark encounter is a safe activity and available from May to September.
