WhaleShark Snorkeling


Riviera Maya


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.   Swimming with the Whalesharks is done by groups of 2 people accompanied by a certified guide at all times.   Itinerary:   The Tour begins with a pick up at your hotel.
