Swim with docile whale sharks off the shores of Cancun during this 6-hour eco-adventure from Cancún or Playa del Carmen. From Punta Sam, take an hour-long scenic boat ride to the area where the whale sharks, the world's largest fish, like to hang out and feed. Under the supervision of your experienced guide, slip into the water to swim and snorkel with these graceful creatures over the course of 3 hours. Eat a light lunch on board the boat en route to the mainland, stopping for a visit on Isla Mujeres. Use of snorkel equipment and round-trip transportation from hotel are included.
  • Full-day eco-adventure swimming and snorkeling with whale sharks
  • Learn about the docile whale sharks' biology and behavior
  • Scenic boat ride to the site of the whale sharks' feeding ground
  • Sandwiches and snacks served on the boat
  • Stop at Isla Mujeres for swimming and fresh shrimp ceviche
  • Snorkeling equipment included
  • Round-trip transportation from Cancun hotels
Start your day's eco-adventure with pickup from your Cancún or Playa del Carmen hotel. In a comfortable tour vehicle, head for Punta Sam, approximately 15 minutes away by car. 
In Punta Sam, enjoy some coffee, fruit and pastries before boarding the boat. During the 50-minute journey to the whale sharks' feeding area, get an orientation on whale shark biology and behavior. Your guide will explain how the activity will work and what you can expect. 
Once at your destination, spend approximately 3 hours taking turns swimming and snorkeling with the whale sharks. Don the provided snorkeling gear and slip into the water, two people at a time, and swim with these gentle giants under the supervision of your guide. 
After your snorkeling session is over, climb back onto the boat and munch on some sandwiches and snacks on the way back to the mainland. Make a stop at Isla Mujeres, where you'll take a swim in the warm, shallow water and dig in to a fresh shrimp ceviche.
Back on the mainland, get convenient drop-off at your hotel.

This was an incredible experience highly recommend doing it but bring your own go pro as I had thought they would take photos and they didn't. That was the only downer because I was expecting to get at least one photo of the Whale shark. Guides were great and friendly.

This tour was amazing!!
We were a small group, around 8. and had enough time with the whale shark.
After that, we stopped by isla mujeres and had nice time there.
Breakfast and lunch were really good.
A special thanks to our guide Luis. Took us to the best place, guided us with the whale shark, and took the best photos for us.
Not to forget Alejandro as well, for making the photos and pictures for us.
This team was the best!! A big thanks again to all of them.
