If you've never heard of a whale shark, this 6-hour, small-group tour will offer a thrilling, up-close view of the longest fish in the world, who happens to also be completely harmless and curious. Whale sharks are so docile, in fact, that they allow humans to observe and swim around them at a close distance. The tour begins with a morning pickup from your Cancun or Playa del Carmen hotel and a 50-minute boat ride out to the whale sharks' feeding grounds, where an expert guide enters the water with you. Enjoy snacks and on board and stopover on beautiful Isla Mujeres on your return. Round-trip transport from your Cancun or Playa del Carmen hotel, equipment, beverages and snacks, and snorkel equipment are all included.
Be ready for pickup at'7am in Playa del Carmen and 8am in Cancun for this 6-hour eco-adventure. Head to Punta Sam, just a 15-minute drive away, and enjoy complimentary complimentary coffee, pastries, and fruit on arrival.
Your small group boards the boat with your guide, who will educate you on the docile and friendly whale shark, the world's largest fish, during the 50-minute ride to the feeding area. Then, for three hours, you'll slip into the water with the guide two at a time, to swim and snorkel with these graceful creatures. If you're lucky, other marine animals may show up for a swim as well.
Afterwards, jump back on the boat and enjoy sandwiches as you head back to Punta Sam. The boat makes a stop at the charming offshore fishing village of Isla Mujeres, where you can swim in the crystal clear waters and enjoy a delicious shrimp ceviche before returning to Cancun.'
