Swimming with the Whale Sharks was one of the highlights of our trip in Riveira Maya. I would recommend to buy a package that on the way back stops on Isla Mujeres,

Seeing the whale sharks was a brlllant day. Down side to many boats and people trying to see the the same whale shark at once. Im glad ive seen and swam with them. Was it worth the 180USD to get there from my hotel and see them prop not. But if you have the money then do it.

These sharks are MASSIVE!!!! This is one day I'll never forget. The guides were amazing and made sure you got to see as much as you wanted. You swim until you want to leave basically. Getting next to these big guys is just awe inspiring. They could really care less about you swimming along side of them. They just swim... More

Brief hello with the other couple on the bus, and with the guide- who didn't tell us his name or what the... More

The Whale Shark trip left me a bit disappointed, though it was no fault of the staff. There were SO MANY boats and SO MANY other people who wanted to see the whale sharks that it was insane. People were jumping in the water, pushing and kicking just to get a glimpse. Getting kicked in the head while trying not... More
