Cancun & Riviera Maya: Whale Shark Tour + Playa Norte Beach

1. Cancun & Riviera Maya: Whale Shark Tour + Playa Norte Beach

Experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with the largest concentration of Whale Sharks in the world, just north of Isla Contoy.  Start your tour with early morning pickup from any hotel or Airbnb in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, and Tulum. Head towards the all-new private marina located at the Punta Sam Ferry Terminal in Cancun for a quick check-in. Before boarding, enjoy pastries with coffee while listening to the instructions and safety briefing.  Once in the boat, get kitted out with mandatory life vests and full snorkeling gear. All boats depart at 8 AM and navigate for approximately 45 minutes to the whale shark area north of Contoy. Once you have found the sharks, begin the swimming and snorkeling. Enjoy 2 to 3 immersions per person always with 2 people and 1 guide in the water. Spend a full 2.5 hours in total with the Whale Sharks, also observing Manta Rays, Dolphins, and Turtles.  After swimming with the sharks, make a final stop in beautiful Playa Norte beach in Isla Mujeres, considered one of the 20 most beautiful beaches in the world. Here, the boats will remain for about 1 hour for you to relax on the beach or do some more snorkeling. Return to Cancun at around 1 PM where the transportation will take you back to your hotel or Airbnb.

What people are saying about Tulum

Me and my wife had the best experience swimming with whale sharks yesterday, there is no words to describe what it feels like to be so close to them. It’s a trip we will never forget, the guide was brilliant, he knew exactly when we should be in the water to get the best angles for the photos and views for us. We loved every minute of it

The. MOST amazing experience I’ve ever had. Swimming alongside a whale shark blows your mind, they are so beautiful and so big. It was a very bumpy long ride out so be prepared, sea sickness tablets are a must but it’s definitely worth the discomfort. Highly recommend, guides were great & very professional

Wonderful experience Thanks to Gilberto our captain who was able to make us spend a beautiful day, thanks to him we saw and swam with whale sharks we did two dives and then we moved to playa Norte to have a snack and relax in the clear waters of mujeres island

It was an incredibly beautiful day!! The animals are so amazing and both the Captain and JJ in the water did a great job!!

Magical moment and perfect organization! I recommend this activity
