Come explore the incredible world of the whale shark and enjoy the experience of a lifetime with the Whale Shark Discovery. The Whale Shark conveys peace and tranquillity; swimming alongside this gentle giant of the sea is an experience to remember and share again and again. The Whale Shark migrates each year between May and September, so if you are planning to The Mayan Riviera (Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum) during these months, don't miss the incredible opportunity to swim with the Whale Sharks and take home an experience that you will talk about and share with everyone! Whale shark watching can be done by booking a guided tour. No matter where you are staying, transportation / pick up will be organized for you (from Playa del Carmen, Cancun or Tulum)

"Memo" picked me up this morning and asked the standard " where are you from? "Questions that all guides ask. Then he translated for David the driver. He slipped in the word "maricon" when describing our conversation. This means fa__ot in Spanish. I do speak some Spanish. For LGBT people reading this, spend your money elsewhere. If this guy is...

This was an incredible tour! Our guide Gorge was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend applying sunscreen right before you are picked up as you are not allowed to apply before snorkeling. If you are prone to motion sickness this might be a difficult tour for you-- the car ride and snorkeling were a little... a lot bumpy! The... More

This tour included a visit to the Tulum ruins, snorkeling, then exploring two cenotes. I highly recommend this tour for many reasons. Tour started with a punctual pickup. Tour guide Manali was friendly, humorous, attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable on Mayan culture and current environmental issues facing Mexico. A photographer joined us and took such great photos that... More

So in the day of our boat tour to the islands of Isla Contoy and Isla Mujeres - it was raining! But I have to say...it was one of the best boat tours I have ever experienced, and that was thanks to the awesome crew (plus drinking tequila on the boat!) Isla Contoy is absolutely beautiful! Great experience!

Our morning started off bumpy when the tour driver picked up the wrong couple in our place, however the tour company sent a private taxi for us to catch up with the tour. The other couple cancelled and we ended up with a private tour. Our guide was simply amazing! She was SO knowledgeable and educated. We visited the Tulum... More

We booked this as a tour described as "Turtles, Snorkeling, and Cenotes Adventure in Akumal." We confirmed the day before and yet the morning our guide arrived, he seemed surprised we were not told it would not be at Akumal. He told us they had not been able to get into Akumal in over 2 months. In fact, no tour... More

My wife and I did this tour on our honeymoon in Cancun. We LOVED it! The tour guide and all the other personnel of the tour were very knowledgeable and friendly. The drive from Cancun was pretty long, but totally worth it. We first went to the ruins at Tulum and learned a lot about the ancient Maya civilization and... More

We were surprised to be the only ones who booked this snorkel tour, so it became our private tour. Francesca was our tour guide & was the best. She prepared us for what to expect during the trip to Yal-Ku. Blurry water where the fresh water meets salt water, lots of fish at the start of the lagoon, we saw... More
