I was recommend by Total Snorkel Cancun to Captain Whale Shark. The people on the boat wore something on their shirts that said Mininas tours.
We were not allowed to wear wetsuits, only flotation devices instead. The breakfast that they give you is a banana, some bread treat, and a yogurt with crackers. The place was 19 miles out and there were other boats there when we got there. There’s only two people allowed in the water at the time.
BE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN VIDEO EQUIPMENT. They will tell you they deleted the good videos and that some of the divers want to sell those for an extra buck. I was shown some videos from the divers PHONE that he took on the go pro. I said that I wanted those. There was an announcement on the boat and we were told that those videos were FOR FREE.
Now after my trip, they are telling me that those videos had to be bought and then they said that they were deleted.
I want the videos from my first jump. They had no problem sending me the videos from the second jump of me recording the sharks. But when I WASNT recording the sharks from the first jump, they happen to disappear?
There was even one with me and a manta ray AND a whale shark in one take. Why would those randomly be deleted?
Daniel Meza will not respond to me from Captain Whale Shark. Carlos on Contoy excursions is the only one communicating with me.
Also they ask for tip at the end of the tour.

Do not confuse a MISTAKE from our staff and say that is a FRAUD, our staff at the end of the day sent you video footage of your snorkel activity with the whale sharks for FREE, you request specific footage of you swimming with manta rays, that our guide filmed and then showed you during the tour, but unfortunately he erases all the footage of that camera by mistake. In the evaluation sheet you filled at the end of the tour, you rated our tour with 5 stars, sorry for the inconvenience and hope you can understand was a human mistake.

It was incredible. I have a pretty severe phobia of the ocean and had a panic attack the first time we jumped in. T

Great experience, Carlos is a wonderful instructor!
We went on the 27th July and didn't see any whale sharks. This was apparently very uncommon for this time of year.

Great service- but we saw no whale shark, no dolphins, no turtles
The team (guide, captain and all) was great, communication and booking easy. Pick-up and breakfast nice and smooth.

Perfect tour!
Carlos and Chicken were incredible guides. We saw tons of whales and they put us right in the middle of the action.

Choose a different excursion.
Managing expectations is the key here. Expect that you will drive for hours on the open ocean seeing no wildlife.
