I specifically came to Cancun to do the whale shark dive and was blown away by the experience. Locho & El Mar were our guide and captain on this trip. Two very experienced individuals who have obviously spent many, many years on the water. Safety of the passengers was the highest priority. Only 11 passengers on our boat gave us... More

I really enjoyed this companies dedication to the environment and proper practices of interacting with the whale sharks. While on the boat our Crew of Elmer and Junior went above and beyond to make sure the experience was "Top Notch". Having Junior take photos of me in the water with the whale sharks on MY camera was fabulous. Best day... More

Did this tour with a friend and luckily we ended up in Raul & Irvin's boat! These guys were great in many ways! Captain Irvin made sure he got us close enough to jump in at the right time with the whale sharks and then made us a great guacamole. Raul is an amazing guide and made sure everyone got... More

Based on ratings from prior users on trip advisor, I booked 2 tours with them on the same week. Here is what to expect. You arrive at 730am for a briefing.they give you the option of renting a wetsuit for $25 which I did. If you don't, then you have to wear a life jacket when you swim and that... More

What an experience - the boat was small - only 10 people which made it more personal. The captain and the guide went above and beyond. There were probably 50 whale sharks out there, and giant rays. It was an amazing experience to share with my family. We will definitely go back.
