Just the idea of being able to swim with whale sharks is awesome but Whale Shark Daddy Cancun really made it a wonderful experience.

We went in September, 2014, after school had started, to avoid the crowds. We were told that September would be the beginning of storm season, so the trip might get canceled. A storm closed the harbor for a couple of days, so we had to choose another day to go, and Whale Shark Daddy was responsive and patient with our... More

Some of the reviews refer to the safety or the professionalism or complain about champagne. I can't write about the VIP package but can say the Regular Joe package was pretty fantastic. Sure, I saw some captains lose track of their divers - seriously, some were left in the water for more than half an hour while the boat chased... More

The trip was fun, and I'd do it again, but I certainly wouldn't pay the extra money for the VIP package. The guy who picked us up at our hotel to take us to the boat refused to talk to us the whole trip. My young kids, who were very excited about the whales, kept asking him questions but he... More

We went for our 7 year anniversary mid September and had a blast! So glad we did this excursion. The water was terribly unclear and extremely rough conditions due to it being the last day of the season and a hurricane that had just went through. I ended up getting pretty seasick and I practically live on boats back home... More

The opportunity to see whale sharks up close... What a dream. And these guys are good, making sure you catch more than just a glimpse of these magnificent creatures. It's definitely worth renting a wet suit for the trip (which you can get just before casting off). It makes it easier to swim with the sharks than having to use... More
