Swim with the biggest yet harmless fishes in the world - the Whale Shark!

Between the months of May to September (Whale Shark season), these massive creatures of the sea come to Isla Mujeres, an island where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico, to feed on plankton. Your tour will be led by professional guides, who are naturalists and biologists that know everything there is to know about the whale shark.

While here, you'll might be able to see other marine species such as dolphins and turtles.
