This “once In A Lifetime” Trip should not be entrusted to Amateur Trip Operators/Packagers.
Put your TRUST in us….. We’ve done this since it ALL began in 2004 on Holbox Island.
Please note: You are advised to keep a 3′ distance between you & the Whale Shark. Their Tails are very powerful & you could get “Slapped” if you’re too close. OBVIOUSLY there is NO TOUCHING, GRABBING, RIDING, the Whale Sharks. Failure to Follow the Captains Orders will result in IMMEDIATE Removal from the water after the First & “only” WARNING !!!!!
** Note: It is important to know that we cannot control nature, therefore we do NOT guarantee the snorkeling with the whale sharks nor the sightings. The whale sharks come to the waters near Cancun to feed on plankton, however when there is no/few food (plankton) there simply are no/not many whale sharks. We offer the Whale Shark Tour from mid-May to Mid-September, but we strongly recommend to make your reservation between mid-June to August since there is a higher possibility to see whale sharks. MEXICAN GOVERNMENT CONSERVATION AUTHORITY has not authorized any tour operator to offer any type of guarantees
