Whale Shark season 2017 just started on June 1st. We are so happy to invite you to live this awesome experience.
The Whale sharks is the largest of the fish species. They can grow around 40 ft in length and weigh 11 tons.
We departure everyday from Playa del Carmen approximately at 5:00 am (pick up time dependes of your hotel location) in order to be on time in the marina that is located in Cancun at hotel Hyatt Zyva.
We will go in our way to swim with the Whale Sharks pretty early in the morning, so we will be the first boat to arrive to the area.
That is great so we can avoid huge crowd. The estimated time to get to the swimming area that is located close to Isla Contoy is 1:30 hours.
Once we are in the swimming area we will be ready for snorkeling with the Whale Sharks after doing two-person teams. You are going to enter the water with your snorkeling buddy and you will have around 15 minutes to swim, after that you need to get back on the boat and the next team will be ready to get in the water. You will get in the water as many times as possible during the allowed time.
If you are interested in spending more swimming time with these amazing creatures we recommend you a private whale shark excursion.

- No jet skis
- No diving
