Come and join us for a once in lifetime opportunity: Snorkel with Whale sharks!
Every year between July and mid-September, Whale sharks come to feed in the nutrient-rich waters surrounding Isla Mujeres.
Whale sharks are the world’s largest living fish species, capable of growing up to 40 feet in length and can weigh as much as 13 tons. These massive, gentle creatures are early risers, feeding on plankton close to the surface before the sun warms the water. So, to ensure that you get the most from this memorable day, a 4Worlds Expeditions guide will pick you up from the resort early in the morning and drive you to the marina. Once at the marina, a safety briefing will be given before we board the boat and head out.
Whale sharks are constantly on the move, so once on the water, we will spend 40 to 60 minutes locating them. Shorlty after finding them, you will jump into the water in pairs (2 guest + guide), spending a minimum of 1 hour with these incredible, graceful giants.
Afterwards we will head to the northern beach of Isla Mujeres, where you can relax and unwind in the turquoise waters, while enjoying a delicious Mexican ceviche and a cold drink before returning to the marina and the resort.
This excursion operates only a few times a week and the tour is shared with other people from your hotel or proximity hotels. All the semi-private tours leave from a meeting point; However, pick up at your hotel is available at an extra cost and pick up will be assigned according to reservations for the selected date.
