Cancun is one of the best places in the world to view whale sharks all year round and this half-day tour from Tulum offers a rare glimpse of the magnificent creatures. Accompanied by an experienced guide, dive in to swim in the warm waters around Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox; watch whale sharks in their natural environment; then tuck into a delicious lunch (included) of fresh ceviche.
  • Half-day whale shark tour from Tulum
  • Cruise around Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox
  • Enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the warm waters around Cancun
  • Admire wild whale sharks in their natural environment
  • Tuck into a light lunch on-board and sample fresh ceviche
  • Fully supervised tour: no animal contact
  • Small-group tour limited to 15 people ensures a personalised tour
After an early morning pickup from your Tulum hotel or centrally located meeting point, meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people in time for a 6am departure. On arrival in Cancun, hop aboard and set sail around the islands of Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox, one of the most popular spots for whale shark viewing on the Yucatán Peninsula.
Along the way, listen as your guide tells you more about the magnificent sea creatures, which are the largest fish species in the world and can grow up to 65 feet (20 meters) long. Hear how the whale sharks frequent the region where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico to feed on plankton as you catch your first glimpse of the impressive sharks.
After a safety briefing and instruction on how to swim around the sharks, dive into the ocean to swim, snorkel, and enjoy a closer look at the wild whale sharks. Swimming will be conducted in pairs, accompanied by a guide at all times, and there will be no contact or interaction with the whale sharks to ensure that their natural environment is not disturbed.
Back on the boat, refuel with a light lunch, including drinks and delicious fresh ceviche, as you cruise back to shore.
On arrival in Cancun, a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel, where your tour ends around 1pm.

We booked this trip and was told we would be picked up and droppe off to our hotel Azulik. Then we were told via Whatsapp to go to a Super Market 5:10 am in the morning. Not only did they NOT pick us up from the hotel they also dropped us back to the Supermarket after the tour was over. They picked up everyone from their hotel door to door service. I am unsure why my $150.00 was not good enough for pick up and drop off service as mentioned when we booked our trip. We had to pay for our own taxi both ways and we also tipped the driver and the guys on the boat. We got to the tour and rented the equipment after we paid for them and got on the boat they wanted additional $10 for TAXES! This whole trip felt like a scam. We swam with the Shark Whales for a maximum of maybe 15 minutes.
