We were picked up at our hotel at 7 am. It took about an hour to arrive at the marina. We were given a briefing of what to expect and the rules. We purchased biodegradable sunscreen there. I think it took a little over an hour to reach the whale sharks. Along the way we saw sea turtles and dolphins.... More

On July 18, four of us took this whale shark tour and none of us were disappointed!!! Luna, Luis and Poncho were our crew and we couldn't have been more pleased. One of our guests was sick after a long ride out to swim with the sharks and the crew took such good care of her. I was impressed by... More

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The captain Irvin and guide Mosquito were spectacular. There were a lot of boats out swimming with the whale sharks. Our capt. tried to get to an area where there was less congestion so we could have a better experience. We were allowed in the water 3x's, in... More

The whole reason for booking our Cancun trip was to swim with whale sharks, therefore we booked two days with different companies in hopes to see one of these majestic creatures. We booked with "whale shark Mexico" and "holboxtravel". I'm so pleased to say we were able to swim with many sharks and the adventure far exceeded my expectation. Pros... More

My husband and I toured this July with captain Reyndo and guide JJ wuth two families on a clean nice boat. Pick up and transport from playa del carmen cost extra 30 per person. Wetsuits are an additional $25 and were necessary if you want to swim not float. We rode in the boat for about an hour to find... More

It has been nearly two weeks since we went on our excursion. The smile has not left my face yet. From start to finish, Cancun Whale Shark was first class. No language barriers, easy to make reservation, brand new courtesy vans, clean well maintained boats and terrific crews. We appreciated how they were respectful of the fish. This is not... More

I had been looking to do this trip for five years and finally got my chance this vacation. The experience was better than I ever had imagined. The weather was perfect, the water was beautiful and the crew of Locho, Paul and Nestor could not have been more accommodating. They got us there early and told us exactly how to... More

I swim with sharks every year and this year, I chose Whale Sharks. I phoned a couple months ahead and booked the VIP Package to have my own private experience. It was worth every penny. Junior and his father exceeded all expectations with the boat, the swims and the food. I was traveling with my ailing uncle and they took... More

This was the highlight of our trip. A bit high but worth every penny. We would do it again for sure. The captain Irvin and guide Mosquito were awesome, from the time we got on the boat to finding the animals and putting you in front of their face with accuracy and care for the enviroment, people and other boats...

Beautiful to watch in nature. The guides will take you in groups of 8, about a 1 1/2 hr trip out into the open ocean. A little bumpy, a few on the boat got sea sick. Diving in 2 at a time, with the guide, to see the 40 feet long whale sharks swimming a foot away. Amazing !!! We... More
