After being let down by our own tour operator we called Rodrigo (the whale shark daddy) and he managed to get us on to the final boat on the last day of the season! It was amazing. They provided all the info and accessories we needed and didn't pressure us to add anything on top of the basic. We were... More

This was not peaceful like the pictures might make it appear. You journey out in a boat is great fun. Once the whale sharks are spotted you can see them from the boat and that was the best part. Then the chaos began. About 40 boats corralled the whale sharks for about 11/2 hours. You go off in pairs so... More

This was an experience of a lifetime! I am a scuba diver and I was praying a Manta would show up on our whale shark tour and 1 did. First of all, Whale sharks! HOLY CRAP!!! So huge! So Majestic! Sooooo MANY of them. Then a manta ray! What a magical day! I'm glad I had the experience, but I... More

Serio and Ferando were excellent guides for our first experience swimming with Whale Sharks. We left early, before the rest of the tours, and were able to experience the Whale Sharks on our own before the rest of the boats arrived. These guys are amazing guides and on the way back spotted a school of Manta Rays and we stopped... More

Very well run and organised. Suitable for all levels of swimmer. Amazing spectacle. You are well cared for by the crew member in the water, and by the boatman. Good food supplied after the event, in the lagoon at the tip of Islas Mujeres, with plenty of liquid.

Our group The DiveBar had the most amazing two days with our guide Locho and Imar, the boat captain. Besides swimming with whale sharks we met up and swam with a pod of dolphins. Locho speaks dolphin! We also ended our 2 day adventure with ceviche made by our guides while we sipped our Coronitas in the crystal blue waters... More

I like to think I am a fairly strong swimmer with lots of experience snorkeling. However, the whale shark excursions offered, you need to be in great shape and an excellent swimmer. You will ride in the boat until the whale sharks are spotted. Then the boat circles the area and you must jump while the boat is moving and... More

Trip cancelled initially and rebooked due to BAD weather. When we arrived we were a little sceptical as the pallapa is next to hacienda del mar and looks nothing to write home about. We went out with Sergio and Fernando after a briefing by Daniel. We found around 20 sharks feeding and among the other 30 boats we all had... More
