Luz Maria is incredibly personal and with her assistant, both very knowledgeable about whale sharks, current research efforts, and conservation. They have great respect for the preservation of the species and do a great job at making you feel comfortable on the dives. Such a great experience and highly recommend it!

I'm a biologist so going with a fellow biologist was amazing . They taughtthe kids about whale sharks and all the animals on our trip. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I would not do at any other well shark tour. They are in a class all by themselves. They go above and beyond what a normal whale shark tour... More

This was the best exursion I've ever had the pleasure of taking. Luz Maria, Mario, Pancho and Panchito were professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the whale sharks. Swimmers in my family ranged from my 10 year old son to my dad in his 70s. We all had a fantastic time seeing the whale sharks. They are truly beautiful animals.... More

I have always had a passion for swimming/diving with sharks and my number 1 'to-do' activity was to swim with whale sharks. I was concerned after reading many reports of the negative effects of tourism on the whale sharks in Mexico, particularly hearing about many different companies chasing whale sharks and harassing them. I was therefore very keen to find... More

This is a very competitive business. . Dozens of boats are out there every day during Whale Shark season. This was my first time experiencing the Whale Shark Encounter, but I am convinced that I found the best operators to guide me. Luz Ma and Mario have made hundreds, maybe thousands of these trips, yet they still get excited about... More

Myself, my partner and our two friends had a great day with Luiz, the captain, mini Captain and Mario. Got yo see a nu,bet of whale sharks and enjoyed the snorkelling trip to the reef later. Whale shark snorkelling off the coast of Cancun is big business and we enjoyed going with a small independent company rather than following the... More
