Overview

Come explore the incredible world of the whale shark and enjoy the experience of a lifetime with the Whale Shark Discovery. The Whale Shark conveys peace and tranquillity; swimming alongside this gentle giant of the sea is an experience to remember and share again and again. The Whale Shark migrates each year between May and September, so if you are planning to The Mayan Riviera (Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum) during these months, don't miss the incredible opportunity to swim with the Whale Sharks and take home an experience that you will talk about and share with everyone! Whale shark watching can be done by booking a guided tour. No matter where you are staying, transportation / pick up will be organized for you (from Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum)

We went solely to swim with the sea turtles. We were assured we would see some however that was a lie. The whole snorkeling experience was quite disappointing. The coral was dead and the time spent was very limited.More

We were told we would see turtles or our money back. Turtles have left the area apparently but the tour is still being sold as a “turtle tour.” Oh, and also, no money back.More
