From June 1st to September 15th you have a unique opportunity to swim in the open sea with whale sharks which are the largest of the currently existing species of sharks, as well as the largest of modern fish!

Whale sharks are unique in their kind for a number of reasons:

  1. It’s the biggest fish in the world.
  2. It is a passive and apathetic shark feeding on plankton.
  3. The spotted pattern on the skin of each fish is unique, like our our fingerprints, and the world-famous society of oceanographers uses this pattern to compile a “world catalog of whale sharks.” Moreover, sharks are born with stripes, which turn into spots with age.

Can you imagine yourself swimming surrounded by fish with a length of 12 to 20 meters? And if there is a flock of fishes? But despite it, they are not dangerous to humans. So, if your vacation time in Cancun coincides with their presence, we invite you to make this unforgettable adventure! Booking our tour you receive:

The guide was informative, professional, attentive and I just can’t say enough to let you know what a great day we had. Smartest thing I ever did finding this company. Absolutely positive all around.
The guide was extremely nice and he was very informed and was happy to answer any questions we had. He led us through various activities at Chichén Itzá and throughout the day to keep us entertained. Would highly recommend this tour and also very welcoming for children as well.
Excellent all around!! Galo was our tour guide and he was incredible! Bus was large and had plenty of space for any souvenirs purchased and bags. All of the stops up to and including the Chichen-Itza was amazing and well worth it. Incredible experience! Highly recommend

An absolute must, the tour was awsome, the guide explanation were great, the purification ceremony a wonderful experience and the temazcal top ! Swimming at night in the cenote is amazing.
We loved this tour. This is not the typical “go to a restaurant and try different things”, it’s a cultural experience. Very educational and everything that we had was delicious. Our guide explained how the market worked and why it worked that way. Understanding and immersing yourself into a culture is what traveling is about, and that is what this tour does. If your looking for a taste of “real” Mexican foods and culture, this is it!
