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.

Wonderful!!!

I did this activity by myself and was a little anxious as I have never snorkeled before. Team consisted of: guide Carlos, captain Gener & the marine Erick, all whom were very welcoming and friendly. Guide Carlos picked and dropped each one of us at our respective hotel. On our way to the marina, Carlos shared important information regarding the WhaleShark/activity. Erick was very alert and attentive to us at all times while snorkeling. He helped me calmed down as I felt that I couldn’t breathe at the very beginning. Erick also managed to take really good pics/videos of us. The captain made a fresh ceviche for lunch which was delicious! The three work together to ensure the comfort and safety of each individual. I highly recommend snorkeling with WhaleSharks through Get your Guide. With no doubt I’d do this again! Thx for this unforgettable experience!!!❤️
