Plunge into the azure waters of the Caribbean and experience the adventure of a lifetime by snorkeling with whale sharks in Cancun.

The Cancun Whale Shark Tour Cancun & Riviera Maya is an adventure-packed day tour that will let you meet the world's largest fish, as well as snorkel in the warm waters near Isla Mujeres.

This amazing nature adventure starts in your hotel, where you'll be picked up and taken to the pier, where a light Mexican breakfast will await you. Then, hop aboard a boat where your bilingual guide will give you instructions to better prepare you for the experience to come.

Once you encounter a whale shark pod, you'll be able to snorkel next to this gentle giant following the expertise of your dive-certified guide, who will keep you safe every step of the way.

Once you're done, you'll be able to enjoy fresh drinks and a snack on your way to Isla Mujeres, where you'll snorkel around the coast before enjoying a delicious Caribbean lunch on the famous Playa Norte. We offer Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free options available upon request.

Enjoy a cold Mexican beer on Isla Mujeres before boating back to the mainland in the early afternoon with this cherished new experience of snorkeling with whale sharks in Cancun.
