Our Snorkeling With the Whale Shark Tour in Cancun Itinerary

Start your Captain Whale Shark experience straight at our marina. We have private parking in case you bring your car. We will immediately introduce you to your captain while you enjoy pastries, coffee, juice and fruits. If you book transportation, we will pick you up on a comfy, A/C van at your hotel’s lobby, or Bnb.  The driver will get off the van and call you by your name.

We’ll have a short safety briefing where we will explain you the nature of the Whale Sharks, their behavior and interesting facts. Do’s and dont’s.

Time to try your equipment, vests, fins, so they fit perfectly at the time of the snorkeling.

We’ll make this trip on a roomy, clean, stable and safe 32 ft. boat equipped with 2 motors 140HP each, and dry storage.

Located exactly between Contoy and Isla Blanca.

Expect to see from 20 to 50 whale sharks. There are times when we find over 150, but it really depends on the season and weather conditions.

During the prime of the season, June and July, we can find turtles, dolphins and Manta Rays.

After snorkeling with the whale shark, it’s time to go back. We’ll have a courtesy stop at Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres, Top 5 most beautiful beaches in the world.

Enjoy authentic Mexican made-at-the-moment fresh fish ceviche, corn chips, and sandwiches as lunch at the island.

During the whole tour we offer bottled water, soft drinks, fruit and power bars.

We have showers at the marina so you can change before going back to your hotel.

If hired, the van will be waiting for you to drive you back to the exact place where we picked you up.

Whale Shark Tour in Cancun Reviews

Our guests are completely happy with our Cancun Whale Shark Snorkeling Tour with the largest fish on Earth. Take a look at the video from our friends from Germany next. Or visit our Google Profile

Cancun Whale Shark season is available from May to September.

There are no diving tours with the Whale Shark. It is actually illegal for conservation reasons. Snorkeling tours are amazing anyway, as the whale sharks, manta rays and turtles swim on the surface.

Yes. But remember that it is a tour on the seas which can be dangerous. We follow all safety measures in order to make the tour as safe as possible. We have received up to 8 months pregnant guests but we do ask for a responsive letter where you make yourself responsible for taking the tour.

Captain Whale Shark Guarantee

We can't offer a refund if we see no whale sharks. Nature is unpredictable and tours costs are high. However, we pretty much guarantee the encounter with the following actions:

  • We track the Whale Shark activity everyday with over 10 boats with fish finders.
  • In case we haven’t had whale shark activity, we’ll let you know one day prior your tour to let you choose between taking the risk or cancelling with a refund.
