Whale Shark Experience

The Cancun whale shark experience is a once-in-a-lifetime outing where you’ll swim with these amazing creatures in their Caribbean habitat. Share a unique moment with the whale sharks by getting up close and personal with them and enjoy a trip to Isla Mujeres’ northern shore for some snorkeling and lunch when you anchor up. Setting sail to swim with whale sharks

To start your adventure, a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle will pick you up from your resort to take you north to the port of Punta Sam. As you pull up at the port, you’ll be met by a professional crew before boarding your comfortable boat.

They will take you through everything you need to know, setting a course through the beautiful blue waters of the Mexican Caribbean. There, of course, you’ll do what you came for — taking the plunge to swim with the gentle giants of the ocean. Before diving into your Cancun whale shark experience…

Know that these whale sharks are some of the biggest creatures in the deep, blue sea. They can grow up to 32 feet wide, yet are very tame, and can live up to 70 years. The crew will tell you this and other fun facts about whale sharks in Cancun so you know what to expect when you get up close and personal.

Once you’re briefed, get ready to feel that rush as you jump in and the whale sharks swim right by you, safe in the knowledge that you’re definitely not its preferred snack — whale sharks are filter feeders, meaning they eat only plankton and krill-like substances.

Keep your eyes open, you won’t want to miss a moment of this unique experience. Post-swim lunch at Isla Mujeres.

After your excellent Cancun whale shark encounter, you’ll make a pit stop at Isla Mujeres’ beautiful northern shore. Once you’ve anchored up, you can enjoy a freshly prepared lunch with some well-deserved refreshments, including beer, before sailing back to your port of origin.

Afterward, you’ll be transported back to your resort with your mind full of memories of your wonderful whale shark encounter in Cancun.
