Overview

Swimming with whale sharks at Cancun is the experience of a lifetime. Join a whale shark watching or snorkeling tour from our comfortable boats and experience the ultimate wildlife encounter. Every year, between first June to late August, these gentle giants of the ocean congregate in the Mexican Caribbean Sea following the mass spawning of coral and plankton .
