The whale shark is the largest fish that exists on the planet today, can grow up to 15 meters in length.
Whale shark prefers warm surface water in those areas where there are cooler, nutrient-rich water outbreaks, since these conditions favor the growth of the plankton from which they feed.
It is one of the reasons why there are so many whale sharks in the waters between Isla Holbox and Isla Mujeres in summer.
Whale sharks are very docile and gentle, do not panic when approaching divers or swimmers.
Snorkeling with whale sharks is a unique and unforgettable experience.
This tour is for people who stay at a hotel on Holbox Island.
If you are not staying on Holbox Island but wish to swim with the whale shark we also organize the whale shark swim tour from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Riviera Maya, Tulum and Isla Mujeres, including transportation and food.
