Year after year, dive groups and journalists from all around the world select us to swim with the world’s largest fish.

So don’t be fooled by other tour operators, departing from Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, promising a later departure or a cheaper price. The ride from Cancun to the whale shark area is twice as far as from Holbox, and if you arrive too late in the morning, the whale shark will have gone deeper for the day due to the water temperature. You don’t want to get a polite “Sorry!” and thanks for coming for the boat ride! You want the ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME experience!
