Full description
Enjoy a light breakfast before you prepare yourself for the boat safari. On your way to the whale shark protected area, look out for dolphins, sea turtles and enormous manta rays. Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world, and you can easily spot them this time of year because they are hungry. Their primary meal, plankton, can be found near the surface.

After an hour or two you will be rewarded with the first views of the whale sharks. Observe them from the boat and jump off the boat to swim up close, if you dare. With your fins and mask, you can snorkel alongside a whale shark. Do you feel the adrenaline? 

After the whale shark activity, get your gear and snorkel at the coral reef to see some tropical fish and corals. Enjoy a delicious Caribbean style lunch while lounging in the water at one of the most beautiful beaches of the world.
