New to Playa del Carmen, this tour lets you swim and snorkel with the world's largest fish in the open ocean in only 9 hours! Board a fast boat and head for Isla Contoy, where hundreds of these massive creatures, up to 60 feet (12m) in length, gather every summer to breed and feed on the summer plankton bloom. This is one of nature's most incredible experiences - you will likely get to snorkel right there with them! Nowhere else in the Caribbean can you have an experience like this - only in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
Whale Sharks Adventure Tour Highlights
Swim and Snorkel in close quarters with whale sharks - maybe not just one, but many! This is an incredible experience, you'll remember it forever!
