THE TRIP

We leave early morning and we will go and search for the whale sharks. On a good day, we see hundreds! In pairs of two, you take several turns with a guide and swim with these Big Fish! Once done, we return to paradise and anchor on the #1 beach from Mexico and enjoy a swim and some fresh ceviche.

- Frequently Asked Questions -

Q. What else can I expect from the Whale Shark Encounter?

A. While swimming with Whale Sharks, we have had sightings of Manta Rays, schools of Atlantic Bonitos, Atlantic Spotted Dolphins and even Wahoo’s.

 

Q. When is Whale Shark Season?

A. Every year, approximately from June to mid-September, large groups of Whale Sharks congregate to the warm Caribbean waters near Isla Mujeres feeding on plankton and other elements at the surface. The plankton, krill, and also eggs from fish spawn enrich the biomass in the water, creating millions of thousands of tiny particles floating and suspended close to the surface. Whale Sharks congregate at the surface to feed on those particles; often in groups of 50 to 100. They slowly move to filter the water. Watching the Whale Sharks feed at the surface while swimming among them is a thrilling and unforgettable sight.

Q. Why not diving?

A. The Whale Sharks eat at the surface where they filter the water, moving slowly and steady around. Swimming among the waves is the best way to approach the Whale Shark and to keep up with them as they move from one spot to the next. Using scuba equipment creates drag that makes it challenging to keep up with the Whale Sharks and the noise of the bubbles makes it difficult to approach the fish. For these reasons, we believe it is best practice freediving and snorkeling.

Q. Why Come With Mexico Divers?

A. This summer you have the once in a lifetime opportunity to snorkel and swim with Whale Shark in their natural habitat. You will need a fast boat and an experienced crew to find the Whale Shark and place you in the middle of the action. Our boat is set up for such an activity and provides a comfortable environment for a long day chasing after these incredible animals. If you are ready to swim with the biggest fish in the sea, then join me for the encounter of a lifetime!

Q. Is it possible to touch the Whale Sharks?

A. Touching the whale sharks and any marine life is strictly prohibited. In line with the Code of Conduct, for the safety of customers and the whale sharks, swimmers must stay a minimum of 3 meters away from the body and 4 meters away from the tail. A full and comprehensive briefing is given on board by the guides before the whale shark interaction.
