Tour Details

Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with the world's largest fish: the gentle, majestic whale shark. Swim with marine guides after a continental breakfast on a dunk in the crystal waters of Cancun. Pairs of swimmers will get the opportunity to swim safely and side-by-side with these huge and kind sea creatures.

Whale sharks come to Cancun's warm waters between June and September. This is the perfect time to visit these gentle giants and join them on a leisurely swim around the blue waters of Mexico. Each person will have several opportunities to join the whale sharks in Cancun's clear water and will swim with a partner and a marine guide. This trip is appropriate for most levels of swimmers, even beginning swimmers, because you'll always be with marine guides and fitted with a life-vest. The whale sharks swim at just about three miles an hour, so you don't have to be afraid, and you don't have to be a fast swimmer. All you need is a sense of adventure and a love of marine life.

After swimming with the sharks, the adventure continues as you trek back to the mainland and embark on a guided snorkeling tour of Cancun's Isla Mujeres reef. Take in the beauty of tons of colorful fish and marine life as you swim safely along with guides. This is the perfect combination of oceanic adventures.

Snorkeling in Cancun after swimming with the sharks? Sounds like you need to recharge. Once the swimming is done, you'll kick back and enjoy lunch and a domestic open bar. Relax and recount the tales of your whale shark swim and then head back to the hotel after an amazing experience you'll never forget!

Please Note: The tour season is approximate and based on arrival and departure of the whale sharks. Once the whale sharks depart for the season, any remaining bookings will be refunded.
