This is truly a once in a lifetime experience, my mom and I went together and though we got very seasick, we still had an incredible time and have no regrets! Our guide Diego and captain julian were friendly, funny and attentive. On the boat ride to sea Diego warned us that of course the sharks are wild animals and therefore we would have to be patient when looking for them as they are constantly on the move. We were expecting to see a few whale sharks, maybe 3-5, but we happened upon a group of 50+!! The beautiful animals aren't bothered in the slightest by humans in their water, making it possible for you to be just a few feet from them.
I recommend this trip to anyone, but definitely bring seasickness medication as they aren't allowed to sell it!!

We booked an adventure with Caribbean Connection to swim with whale sharks with some friends as a graduation trip and it was by far one of the best experiences of our trip. We were guided by Ricardo and Dorian, who made sure we could swim with the whale sharks as many times as we could. After that we all went to Isla Mujeres to swim at a stunning beach with turquoise water full of fish.
The staff was attentive to all our needs, explained lots of interesting things and made the whole experience an unforgettable one.
Absolutely recomendable for everyone!!!

What an experience! Captain (and Chef) Armando & our guide, Angel, were a true dynamic duo that provided our family with memories that will last a lifetime. Angel was amazing, patient and kind with our family of various skill levels -- even guiding along our 9 year old to "a fantastic whale shark experience".

We booked via the whale shark daddy - Rodrigo who was very helpful. On the day our guide Diego and captain Joseph were both fantastic - really nice guys and yes we saw them and yes they are just awesome - we sort of planned our 3 week trip to Mexico around seeing them and we were not disappointed

My husband and I did this adventure with Captain Julian and Guide Diego. Next time we go it will be with them! They are incredible! So attentive and helpful! I was way out of my comfort zone and Diego held my hand the entire time and got me within a few feet of the Whale Sharks... an awesome experience with the best 2 guides ever! We also saw sea turtles on our way out to the sharks and manta rays swimming with the sharks.
