Full description
Get picked up from any hotel in Tulum, Akumal or Playa del Carmen. Get the ultimate adrenaline thrill in the Mexican Caribbean on a 6-hour whale shark snorkel tour. Swim and snorkel with the gentle giants in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Following pick-up, you'll be transferred 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.

Life time experience!

Our tour guide did a fantastic job! We saw several whale sharks in the water. And a big sea turtle and a big Manta from the boat. This was a life time experience! To be next to this more than 10 meter big fish was fantastic! You should get a long sleeve swim shirt and a cap because the sun is really agressiv. The beach and the water at the Isla Mujeres is just amazing. We did a stop there had some snacks and jumped into the crystal clear water. Especially with the current sea grass situation its really worth it to make trip to the clear water of the Isla. In combination with the wildlife and this tour guide I really recommend this tour!
