Swim with Whale Sharks


Playa del Carmen


Specialized First-Class Service

We want you to have a magical experience with these beautiful creatures!  Our whale shark trips are on modern boats and guaranteed, with a full refund if there are no sightings.  First-class service: personalized breakfast and lunch featuring vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, soft drinks, water and beer, complementary snorkeling gear and reef-safe sunscreen, plus professional photography services. 


This is a memory you'll cherish forever.

Until recently, a diver would consider himself lucky if he saw one of these creatures in a lifetime of SCUBA adventures. But here you are, smack in the middle of the world's most striking phenomenon of marine biology. Aquatic elephants on parade!

5:45 AM  take a ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen

6:45 AM  meet our guide at Sr. Frogs at the Playa del Carmen pier

8:00 AM  arrive at the Puerto Juarez marina for a light breakfast

At Puerto Juarez, the captain will give a briefing, and then take the group out to the whale shark sightings.  You’ll have four opportunities to snorkel with the biggest fish in the ocean; two people will be in the water at a time with the bilingual guide.  This is an unforgettable “bucket list” adventure!

Following the encounters, you’ll head to the reef for more snorkeling and a relaxing lunch on the boat.  You’ll then return to the marina in Puerto Juarez for your shuttle, arriving back to Playa del Carmen between 4:00 and 5:30 PM.

From there, hop on the next ferry back to Cozumel, or take a later ferry and linger in Playa to enjoy a stroll, a bite to eat, and shopping the boutiques on the famous Fifth Avenue.
