Isla Holbox Whale Shark Adventure
Cancun Snorkel Tour



ADULTS & KIDS: $258.00 $172.00 - YOU SAVE 35% !  

Get ready for the adventure of your life!  There is nowhere else on earth that you can have this amazing experience - snorkeling with whale sharks!  The whale shark is the largest fish in the world.  It doesn't have teeth, and doesn't eat people, it eats plankton. 

Every summer, the plankton bloom enters the waters around Contoy, and hundreds of this rare fish fill the waters, feasting on their favorite food.  We'll be right there with them, and you can swim or snorkel with them in the wild - no captivity, just interacting with nature in it's natural environment.  A truly amazing tour!

Isla Holbox Whale Sharks

Whale sharks can grow up to 40 feet (12.5 meters) long and weigh up to 20 tons.  It seems incredible that you can swim this close to so many of them in one place...scuba divers delight if they ever see even one in a lifetime!

On this tour, we'll board a powerful 10-passenger boat in Cancun and head out to the whale sharks.  If the weather and visibility cooperate, you'll be able to see and swim with whale sharks, a life altering experience.
