Has anyone toured with Holbox Whale Shark Tours?

Hi All,

I booked a private tour to swim with the whale sharks. I booked with Holbox Whale Shark Tour Company (Shark Daddy = Captain). I think some people were making unfavourable comments about this company. I want to get some opinions on this company. If you went with them on a private or group tour, I would appreciate hearing your experience.

Thanks

First, IHX has more k nowledge than most about Holbox and you can trust her advice. Funny WhaleShark would mention IHX advertising for a buddy when he constantly violates TAs rules for advertising here--and is frequently deleted.

Hi Lori,

To second Robert’s comment, I too have received nothing but good advice from IHX. She spends a lot of time on this forum helping out fellow vacationers. I would think that any recommendations she makes are based on her ample experience (and she’s never steered me wrong).

Regarding reviews vs forum posts, I personally have always found a better depth of information on the forums rather than the reviews.

We have done it a year ago and it was a disaster: 1) the hotel that we booked was miraculously not available so Rodrigo booked us in a 1 star hotel with literally (no exaggeration) cockroaches running through my daughter bed at nigh. Then we waited 7 months for the DVD were promised only to finally receive it generic DVD you can pretty much download from National Geographic. There were no picture of my daughter (or myself) in the water which she took very hard because it means we have to now repeat experience but definately NOT with Holbox Whale Shark Daddy.
