Swimming with Whale Sharks - Amazing

This was the highlight of an overall amazing trip. We got closer than I thought we would to the whale sharks and loved seeing the manta rays as well. There were 10 passengers total on the boat and it never felt crowded or chaotic. Both my kids (11 and 14) enjoyed their three swims as well and always felt safe. It was over an hour to get out to the location so if you are prone to seasickness, take dramamine first. Also apply lots of sunscreen before leaving. We opted to not use the life preservers but just the wet suits and it was great. We purchased the photos and videos of our swims which were a great momento but others on the boat had a go-pro which also worked great. Stopping at the beach for lunch was a great way to cool off and relax at the end of the day.

Incredible experience for me, my husband, and sixteen year old. We were fortunate to only have seven people on the boat so were able to have four turns each with the whale sharks. Captain Noe and his son were friendly, professional, and kept us safe. The stop at Isla Mujeres is a nice lunch break with a swim in crystal clear water while the captain prepares ceviche for lunch. Only hiccup was a last minute pick up change which turned into a 40 minute delay, but we were able to contact the company through the WhatsApp to get an update of when to expect the boat at the pier. They have a 4k video purchase option which captures every moment in the water, and completely worth it. They air dropped the videos to our iPhones while on the boat so we left with our high quality videos. Highly recommend.

We had such and amazing adventure with Captain Pablo and Fernando! They got us to the whale sharks before most of the other boats and Pablo did a great job with dropping us in the perfect spot. Fernando and Pinoche took amazing video for us. After a wonderful experience with the whale sharks they made us delicious ceviche right on the boat and we spent an hour playing in the water at Isla Mujeres. I highly recommend Captain Whale Shark. Ask for Captain Pablo!

Incredible experience & worth the money 100% we did 3 dives with the whale sharks and enjoyed all of them a lot. The Guides did their best to make it happen to everyones satisfaction. Factors like the amount of sharks you can find on a certain day surely influence the experience, but from May to August it is basically guaranteed to see some. Beyond that the crew was really nice and also had a more pleasurable behaviour on and in the water compared to other groups we met, where people got rushed in and out of the water and there was a lot of clamoring&pushing going on. We had such a great time and are thankful for the experience!
