About Mexico Whale Shark
We first started operating the snorkeling tour swimming with the whale sharks in Holbox island in 2001. We were without a doubt the first ones to take a ” visitor ” out on this wonderful adventure, without knowing it was going to become such a big event every year. Now we are known as being the best whale shark tour company in Cancun, Mexico. We are the best reviewed whale shark tour from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Tulum, Akumal, Riviera Maya, Holbox reviews on TripAdvisor.

Good captain and good guide. I'll make special mention of what nice condition the boat was in. Clean and almost new upholstery, engines were clean , everything was ship shape. There were may boats out at the whale shark areas and we were on one of the nicest boats. It's at least one to 1 1/2 hour ride to the whale sharks, so the boat you're riding on matters. The caption and guide did a great job of positioning us to have a good chance of swimming next to the sharks.

We really had no idea what to expect! Our guide "Brandon" was great! The weather is the morning was less than great but we carried on and found two large whale sharks! The experience was so awesome! To be close to a fish 30 feet long is amazing! Thanks again Shaddai for providing your boat and returning us back safely to the island!

5 out of 5! The excursion was excellent and we had no complaints. Isaac and Nate were wonderful. The boat was clean. The provided food was simple, but appropriate for the excursion. It was well worth the time and expense. We did see the advice in a previous review to take a Dramamine the night before and again in the morning…that was sound advice and kept the two of us upright and enjoying the entire day.

This company blew away my expectations. We did the private whale shark excursion for 10 people and it was phenomenal. They made sure we got there early before everybody else and we were able to swim with a whale shark by ourselves. As our time with the whale sharks was ending, tons of boats showed up. They truly gave us the best, most intimate, and private time with the whale sharks. Not only that, but they dropped us off in front of the whale sharks mouth every time so that I could get great footage. They also served us some phenomenal ceviche and we had an overall wonderful time. The crew was so much fun and so welcoming. Lastly, my Gopro wasn't working properly and none of my videos saved to my SD card and the company was kind enough to share footage with me from past experiences because I was so distraught! Highly recommend this company and want to return!

Such an amazing experience! We actually did it two days because it was so good. Cindy and Isaac were great guides. We saw lots of whale sharks and other sea life. A light lunch was provided.
