You get to a fantastic lagoon where you take the boat. The environment there is great and they are the only one leaving from there! Very professional, the whale sharks were great and the ceviche was great. Thank you for this unforgettable day!

I highly recommend travelers to go with Xtabay Company if you are planning to visit this great animal. Not only because of the experience of swimming with this amazing creature, but also because of the respect the team shows to this specie and to the environment.

Hotel pick up, travel to a not busy marina, suit up in provided shorty wetsuit, and equipment. Or use your own equipment. Lunch was delicious, i memorized the fish dip, sandwiches were just as good. Luz Marie will make... More
