Swimming with Whale shark

Discover and swim with the wonderful whale shark

The whale shark is the largest fish in the world and totally harmless to humans. Swimming with this majestic animal is an unforgettable experience, to share with family and friends.

Being able to observe its slow and poetic movements through the water is an infinite learning about the marine animal kingdom and our relationships with it.

Unique lifetime experience

The Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is one of the few places in the world where you can see the whale shark. These gentle giants are slow swimmers relative to their colossal size.

Hundreds of whale sharks visit the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula during the summer season (June to mid September) to feed on plankton, which is very abundant at this time of year.
