The whaleshark adventure is a once in a lifetime opportunity to safely swim with the largest sharks in the world. In the months of June, July, August and September the waters of the mexican Caribbean are one of the worlds largest gathering grounds for these incredible animals that can range from 15 to 40 feet in length. Just so you know the sharks eat plankton and not fish or tourists.
This one of a kind adventure begins with the rich ocean experience, a community based operator with a long and fruitful involvement in whale shark swims, open water activities and sport fishing. Your guide is a true waterman, as well as an expert and lover of the ocean with more than 40 years of experience in guiding adventure tours, services and marine science.
The boat is incredibly safe, comfortable, with a spacious deck and unique stability that is ideal for topside photo and video.The cruise itself is a lot of fun and often you are able to see amazing wildlife including dolphins, turtles, mantas and seabirds.
Upon spotting the whale sharks each guest will be able to put on their snorkeling gear and enjoy snorkeling with the sharks while accompanied by a guide. You will literally be able to see them right infront of you.
On this adventure you can swim with them as many times as you want and get as close as you want without touching them.
After everyone has had their fair share of swimming with the whale sharks we will head by to a nearby coral reef for great snorkeling or if others want to visit a beach we can go relax and enjoy lunch. The captain leaves it up to the guests to decide what they would rather do.
This is an absolutely unforgettable that you will remember the rest of your life.
