About your experience

Experience the magic of swimming with the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, in Tulum. Despite being a shark, this gentle giant has no teeth and feeds by filtering krill, posing no danger to swimmers. From June to September, embark on a boat tour to their feeding grounds, where you can snorkel alongside these awe-inspiring creatures. The underwater view is breathtaking, offering an unforgettable encounter with nature. Afterward, enjoy lunch on the boat near Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres, with a chance to swim in the crystal-clear waters.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this tour for everyone?
    Not recommended for children younger than 6 years old and pregnant women.

    This tour involves a lot of time spent on a boat and the time spent looking for the whale shark can extend to 1h30. The experience is spectacular but is not recommended for people who are sensitive to sea sickness. Please bring Dramamine with you as we are not allowed to provide medication to our clients.
  • Should I bring sunscreen?
    The area is protected and the captains might not let you put sunscreen on. We hope you can understand and bring clothes to protect you from the sun.
