About your experience

One of the activities you can’t miss is to come and swim with the Whale Sharks here in Isla Mujeres. These gentle giants are peaceful creatures who feed mostly on tiny plankton. Don’t let the name Whale Shark frighten you. Actually, they are neither whales nor sharks, but actually the largest fish in the sea!

Your trip starts at our dive shop, where we give an introductory briefing. We complete our gear checks and we head out to the location where we expect the Whale Sharks to be, which is typically about an hour north of the island.

Once we get to the feeding area east of Isla Contoy, two people at the same time are allowed to jump into the water with our guide for an up-close encounter with these gentle giants. We take turns, in groups of two. As a result, everyone has multiple chances to jump in with the Whale Sharks, without stressing the animal or overwhelming them.

Once we have snorkeled with the Whale Sharks, we return to Isla Mujeres, where you will be able to have lunch and swim at the beautiful Playa Norte. Meanwhile, the captain prepares fresh fish ceviche for you. Some drinks and a well-deserved lunch, and you are ready to return to land after an unforgettable experience.
