WHAT TO EXPECT
Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation whether you are staying in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, or Tulum. The air conditioned and comfortable mini bus will then take you to the launch location (pier) where the boats are waiting for the adventure to begin. Then we’re off to swim with whale sharks in Cancun and the surrounding waters Isla Mujeres, and Holbox depending on where the whale sharks are feeding in these rich waters.
Before boarding, you can enjoy a freshly prepared delicious continental breakfast. After breakfast we’ll start boarding the boat, and once boarded your guide will give a safety briefing in your preferred language. In general you can expect to enjoy a beautiful and scenic speedboat ride that takes about an hour to get to the where the Whale Sharks are located. Quite often guests spot dolphins and manta rays during the crossing not to mention flying fish that leap clear out of the water.
Sometimes the whale sharks are in the waters off of Isla Mujeres, or occassionally in Holbox but either way we will find them. Once we find the Whale Sharks, we’ll get into the water and snorkel with these majestic creatures for approximately three hours. The good news is that you won’t just be swimming with whale sharks in Cancun you will also encounter large manta rays, and if you are lucky maybe a curious dolphin or two.
After the Cancun whale shark tour has concluded, we will go snorkeling at a beautiful coral reef close to Isla Mujeres. We’ll then bring you to Playa Norte which has been named as one of the Most Beautiful Beaches in the World. Wading in the shallow waters of Isla Mujeres with ice cold refreshments and fresh ceviche is an unforgetable treat.
From Playa Norte we’ll return back to the pier in Cancun, where your guide and driver will bring you back to your hotel. Expect to arrive back to your hotels around 15:30 (for accommodation in Cancun) and 16:30 (for accommodation in the rest of the Riviera Maya).
