Swim with Whale Sharks


A truly once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Pick-up from Riviera Maya or day trip from Cozumel ~ meet at pier to catch 5:45 AM ferry to Playa del Carmen.

From Playa, we will take van (approx. 75 min) to departure pier in Cancun.

Boat ride to congregation varies depending on their position. We usually find whale sharks 60-90 min offshore.

Water and soft drinks included on-board.

If anyone is prone to seasickness or is not used to boats, please come prepared. Usually taking medication out at sea is too late.

Snorkel equipment is available - all swimmers are required to wear a flotation device. Please bring a wetsuit if you have one. If not, they will require you to wear a lifejacket that will seem cumbersome to experienced swimmers.

Regulations allow for 2 people in the water at a time - please follow all guide and boat captain instructions.

We complete the day with a dip in the shallow waters of Playa Norte - the north beach of Isla Mujeres. A chicken sandwich for lunch, fresh ceviche, chips, and guacamole is served.

Afterward we go back to departure pier in Cancun, take the van to Playa, and finally the ferry back to Cozumel. We usually catch the 4 or 5 PM boat for return.
