Swimming with Whale Sharks in La Paz

By Viator, February 2017

5 23 Reviews | Add your review

From October through late spring, whale sharks—the largest fish in the world—come to feed on plankton in the nutrient-rich waters of the Bay of La Paz and Sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur. There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as getting in the water with these wild animals in their natural habitat.

How to Go
Since whale sharks tend to feed in shallow waters, it’s possible for even novice snorkelers to enjoy the experience of observing them beneath the surface. Excursions to swim with whale sharks often include a boat trip out to a viewing site and snorkeling gear, plus snacks and refreshments. While it’s possible to swim with whale sharks on a day trip from La Paz, you can deepen your knowledge of these creatures on a multi-day expedition through the Sea of Cortez. See below for more options.
