Yes. Schools of them plus very close in water encounters. No guarantee of course.

Took a whale shark tour from Isla Mujeres and saw one school of over a hundred rays from the boat. Also saw one large manta jumping also from the boat. Didn't see any while snorkeling though.

That is great.

How far out do you have to go for the whale sharks?

Our boat left from Isla Mujeres and then picked up passengers on Cancun. From there it was maybe and hour or hour and half to where the whale sharks were.

It won't take that long from Holbox. Happy snorkeling!

We just went on Thursday and saw rays on the way to and from the sharks. Took a quick swim with them on the way back.
