We’ll pick you up at the scheduled time in your hotel and head directly to Cancun.


During the ride, our guide will brief you about the day plan, whale shark biology, and its habitat.  Once we arrive at the marine, you’ll have time to relax, enjoy the tasty breakfast and get ready for the adventure.  After breakfast, we’ll depart towards the whale shark area and start our search.


Snorkel with magnificent animals

If on the way to the whale shark zone we spot manta rays, the captain will stop the boat and we’ll snorkel with these beautiful animals. Once whale sharks are spotted, we will start with the snorkeling. We’ll do something called – Snorkeling rounds: 2 guests and one guide.


We swim slowly, smoothly, calmly. We are guests at home of the whale shark.  Respect, watch, and enjoy these fantastic creatures.  Remember that we are just observant in their world.


After the swimming and all the excitement, we’ll serve sandwiches,  fruits, water, soft drinks and on the way back we will stop to do some snorkeling, and we will return to Isla Mujeres for lunch. We’ll have an hour to relax and enjoy the fantastic beach Playa Norte in Islas Mujeres.


After the beautiful day, we will return to the marina at about 03:30 PM. During the tour, our guides will give you all the information about the fauna of this beautiful ecosystem; they will also explain security protocols and make sure that you are having a great time.

WHAT IS Ecotourism
Whale shark Tours in Cancun
In 1983, Hector Ceballos Lascuráin, architect and author, defined ecotourism as a form of responsible tourism.The term ecotourism was first used about thirty years ago and although its meaning has been the subject of much debate since it is generally accepted as the responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people and involves interpretation and education. So, if ecotourism is properly applied, it should represent a viable option for the conservation of the natural and cultural heritage of people while promoting sustainable economic development. It should include traveling without disturbing nature in order to enjoy, appreciate or study the natural attractions (landscapes, flora and fauna) and also cultural events part of local cultures.
