Have you ever come face to face with one the largest, most beautiful fish in the ocean? If you haven’t, then our whale shark tour from Playa del Carmen is not to be missed! Reaching sizes of up to 16 meters (50 feet), Whale Sharks are the largest fish in the sea, and on this snorkel tour you can get up close and personal with the friendly giants. Despite their enormous size, Whale Sharks are one of the most docile shark species and this tour is sure to make you fall in love with them.
From June to mid-September, Whale Sharks arrive in Mexico’s Yucatan Channel looking for the warm plankton-rich waters of the Caribbean. This makes it the perfect time to swim with these incredible fish in their natural environments. Alongside the Whale Sharks, this once-in-a-lifetime tour enables you to swim with dolphins, manta rays and sea turtles; all with the guidance of our bilingual tour guide.
