Encounter the world’s biggest fish, the majestic whale shark. Do not miss this seasonal phenomenon, only available in select parts of the world, and join us for a swim along the awe-inspiring giant.
Despite their name, whale sharks are as non-aggressive and calm as you can wish. Feeding off invisible plankton, hundreds of whales migrate to Cancun each summer to find food in the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Cruise out to the area of paradise island Contoy, where the whale sharks are usually encountered usually. You might stumble upon a single or a whole group. Once you approach them, put on your life jacket and snorkeling gear, and descend into the water, taking turns.
Swim along with the graceful gigantic fish, observing its movements with fascination. On some occasions, you might even be able to spot it from the boat, as the whale sharks tend to swim close to the surface.
Conclude the amazing experience with a lunch before returning to your hotel.
