WHALE SHARK ADVENTURE
FROM PLAYA DEL CARMEN - SEE FROM
Get ready for the adventure of your life! There is nowhere else on earth that you can have the experience of snorkeling with whale sharks! The largest fish in the world. It doesn't have teeth and doesn't eat people just eats plankton.
Every summer, the plankton bloom enters the waters around Contoy, and hundreds of whale sharks fill the waters, feasting on their favorite food... a scuba divers delight. Depending on the weather you may swim with them in the wild - no captivity, just interacting in its natural environment.
Discover why this is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure by joining us on this extraordinary journey!
