Humpback whales come into the bay which is why Puerto Vallarta is the spot. I am sure Cancun has whale tours, but that would be whale sharks with a different migratory pattern

I think she woukd be safe if you have a life jacket for her. The boat is out for over an hour though and little ones don't have a long attention span. She will be bored and restless before you get back.
