WHALE SHARK SEASON 2021: Mid-May to mid-Sep!
This summer, swim with the whale shark and live the experience of a lifetime!
Can you imagine swimming with a 14-meter-long animal? Whale sharks, the biggest fish in the world, come every year to visit Holbox. It’s totally harmless, so you will be able to swim by its side in an amazing experience. During the boat trip, you may see turtles, giant manta rays, dolphins and/or many other species.
It’s cool to swim with whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium’s Ocean Voyager in Atlanta but, it’s another thrill of a much different kind to actually swim side by side with whale sharks in their natural habitat in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
This full day trip will give you memories for the rest of your life.
(Season starts May 15 and finishes September 17. However, we strongly recommend you book your tour between the months of June and August. This is because the possibilities of finding whale sharks are higher in these months. From May 15 to June 10, the tour will include visiting Cabo Catoche, snorkeling, enjoying a delicious ceviche and searching for the first whale sharks of the season. If in doubt, contact us. We will provide all the necessary information so you can take an informed decision.)
