Fantastic experience. Best adventure tour we did during our week stay. If you are slightly nervous about swimming in open water, choose to wear a life jacket. I had no snorkeling experience and would have been more confident with a life jacket on my first jump. You get 2-3 jump ins to swim with the whale sharks. Your guide will take pictures with your water proof camera for you if you ask. About half of our group got nauseous, so take Dramamine to help well before to have the best time. Lunch - ceviche was DELICIOUS. Great group of people running this tour.
It was amazing. Everyone was professional and the crew was so kind and patient toward all of the people on the boat. The sandwiches that were provided for lunch were not much to be thrilled about but the ceviche was incredible.
Really great Crew. Extremely professional and gave total attention to my group. Gave lots of great information to us about the sharks and made the whole experience something to never be forgotten.
Best experience of the trip! Our guide Pato was incredible, and made us all feel very safe and comfortable. The on board ceviche lunch was delicious, and finishing the day off at beautiful Isla Mujeres was the perfect way to conclude an awe-inspiring day.
This was one of the most exciting trips my daughter and I have EVER done!!! We had a great crew who took care of us so well. Juan was incredible. Edgar was personable and endearing and the captain was wonderful. We had a small group and went out in twos. They got us in the water when the sharks were close by for FANTASTIC pictures! We all got to be in the water with the sharks twice. We loved being picked up right at our hotel and the unexpected small continental breakfast offered to us at the marina when we arrived. The stop at Isla Mujeres for a swim was anti-climactic, of course, after spending so much time around the sharks but it was very nice. This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip that you should truly consider doing. In the water with these beautiful gentle creatures is absolutely amazing. Thanks Juan for getting us in the water and helping us out there to see as many of the sharks as possible while in the water. There had to be 30 sharks in the water that day...incredible!!! Thanks to Edgar for being so welcoming and sweet. GREAT trip !!!!!!!!
What an amazing experience! I would highly recommend anyone in the Cancun area do this. It's about an hour boat ride out to where the whale sharks are, a couple people got sick so I definitely recommend Dramamine we did have any but Hector found some for us and we had a much more enjoyable time because of it. Don't forget to apply sunscreen before and during the trip, you are out in that sun for a long time! Our tour guide, Hector, was awesome!
This was an amazing tour and our guide Barna was great! They picked us up at our hotel, took us to the marina on time. They were very polite, helpful and careful to teach us all about respect for the environment and the whales. The Captain was excellent and everyone in the boat had several opportunities to safely get in the water and up-close to these amazing creatures! I highly recommend it!
Absolutely amazing, tour guides are awesome Captain was amazing, food was fabulous, tour guides were very informative and nice and fun to hang with the captain even took us to Playa Norte unexpected trip because half the boat was seasick I highly recommend. I need to buy our video, how do I buy it??
It was amazing being able to swim with these huge, beautiful animals. The guides were great! They went out with us and made sure we saw as many whale sharks as we could and made sure we were doing ok throughout the trip. The one small negative I would say was the boat ride out was a little rough.
Excellent trip. Saw several whale shark and dolphins. On time pick up at our resort with personal attention by the guides for each and every guest on the trip.
we had the best time on this tour!! amazing experience and the guides were awesome!
Absolutely fantastic! Laura, the captain the crew crew were wonderful! Everything was as promised. We were able to swim 3 times with the sharks and everyone was knowledgeable and looking out for the best interest of the whale sharks which was very important to me. This is a must do! They even had a wonderful vegetarian lunch for me on board. Perfect Day!

On time pick up at our hotel. 10 people on our boat. Great information about whale sharks en route. We got to go in 3 times. Saw about 15-20 whale sharks. Good to know: you must wear either the life jacket provided OR rent a wetsuit from them at the dock for 15 cash only. Well worth the money for this bucket list must do!
Incredible experince. The tour guide Carlos was exceptional. We will definetely refer your tour to friends and family. Thank you
The experience of a lifetime, swimming right by the side of absolutely gorgeous creatures Very well organized tour, professional and courteous staff, very attentive to customer safety, comfort, and overall satisfaction. 3 thumbs up!
Once in a lifetime experience. The guide, captain, and hand were all excellent and accomodating. Lunch was very good and they were able to accommodate my Shrimp allergy. I would highly recommend this tour.
I highly recommend this trip. I unfortunately got sick on the boat and forgot my Dramamine. They do encourage everyone to bring this if you get motion sickness. Chris was attentive and very caring to all of us on the boat. the entire staff was caring and friendly. would definitely go again.
This was an incredible experience! Alex, the tour guide was great, he swam along with us and guided us to very close to the whale sharks. I highly recommend this tour.
This was incredible. Our guide Alex, was absolutely the best. He was friendly, knowledgable, and was speaking 3 different languages for all the people in our group. we were impressed. It turned out to be the perfect day.
We were able to find a shark fairly quickly, we heard it can take a while sometimes and our captain and guide let us make a couple rounds so we all got to jump in and swim along side it more than once. It was definitely different than i expected, but it was still tons of fun.
They fed us lunch and let us snorkel a while before taking us back, and it was fanstastic.
Alex is what made this so great, but the whole experience was so much fun.
This was an incredible!! The bus was air conditioned, comfortable. Our guide Karen and the drivers were so friendly. The ceviche/sandwiches by the beach at the end were delicious. Would definitely try this again! Warning - bring motion sickness pills even if you've never experienced any before.
This was an unbelievable experience, better than I could ever express in words! I highly recommend purchasing a good, underwater camera. This is the only thing I regret about this experience - not having photos and video of our own to look back with. The tour guide did record the entire trip, but I did not want to spend $80 on a video with seven other people in it. Also - The lunch was great, wading in beautiful clear water while eating. We even came across wild dolphins and sea turtles!
