This is a seasonal activity. The Whaleshark season starts in June and ends in September every year. If you are visiting the Riviera Maya area between June – September, this is an experience not to be missed! The Whaleshark is completely harmless to humans, it is actually a very docile and curious creature. The Whaleshark swims very slowly on the surface which makes it easy and relaxing to swim with them.
