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.

What people are saying about Puerto Morelos

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!

An absolutely incredible experience. Even if you snorkel with the giants for a few minutes, you have to accept many hours of travel (bus and speedboat). Nevertheless, an absolute recommendation !!!! From the boat we also saw dolphins and 2 turtles ... Then we swam in a beautiful bay on Isla Mujeres that is free of brown algae and then ate fresh ceviche, guacamole and nachos on the boat. It was really a great, unforgettable day! Many thanks to Carlos, Chicken and the captain!

Absolutely a bucket list experience. The guide and boat captain were very professional and experienced.

Nice adventure, safe and amazing. Our best tour in Mexico with a great team

Fantastic trip, but a lot of boats and therefore Mexican chaos at sea
