Captain Renato and Guide J.J. created a great experience! I had some amazing video and pictures of whale sharks! I took a trip on July 2nd. They told us there was a 90% chance of seeing them. I guess it depends on the weather. Swimming fast to keep up with the whale sharks is an experience I'll never forget.

Had a great day with JJ and Renato swimming with the whale sharks. Swam with 4 different whale sharks. Afterwards, we went to Isla de Mujeres to relax and enjoy some ceviche and guacamole that they prepared. The food was awesome. The whale sharks were unreal! I'd definitely book a whale shark tour with Whale Shark Daddy.

We also traveled on July 28th with Raul and Imar. It is hard to find the words to describe what a memorable experience this is! Whale Shark Daddy and his group are very safety conscious and respectful of the whale sharks. They make sure that you feel comfortable and have a great time. They have one guide per 2 swimmers....

While other tours just dropped their passengers in the water and made them swim and swim to catch a glimpse, Nestor dropped us every time nearly on top of the whale sharks. We would merely jump in and be so close to the whale shark we had to back up or stop not to touch them. Over and over the... More

Booked this online by reading reviews and email correspondence with the company. We had an AMAZING time! With nature nothing is guaranteed but man we lucked out and saw plenty of whale sharks on our tour!!! There were 10 of us on the boat to swim and we went in the water in groups of 3 or 4 and all...

This is something for every diver to check off their bucket list. These 40 foot beauties are a site to behold. You swim right next to them, see them in all there splendor as nature intended. Marc was an excellent guide. I have over 250+ dives, and this was a once in a life time treasure.

My little brother and I went on July 28th, 2015 and I must say it was definitely one to remember. Booking took less than 10 minutes and Roddrigo was very easy to talk to. Our resort was in the Puerto Morelos so we had transportation arranged and that worked very smoothly. When you get there you are briefed for about... More

We did quite a bit of research and decided to book directly with Rodrigo the Whale Shark Daddy. Lots of people book same-day with other operators through the tour companies at the various hotels, but we wanted to be sure we went with someone reputable and well-reviewed. It was so worth it to book ahead and go with this company!... More

The opportunity to swim with whale sharks is the main reason I went to Cancun. It did not disappoint. IT WAS AMAZING. These sharks are huge. I understand why people say it's a once in a lifetime experience, but I will likely do it again. The two brothers we had as tour guides told us everything we needed to know... More
