Whale Shark Tour From Tulum and Riviera Maya

Swimming with whale sharks is a life-changing experience, a unique adventure for nature lovers everywhere! Whale sharks can grow up to 12 meters long and weigh up to 20 tons, this is HUGE!

Whale sharks are friendly to divers and swimmers, they pose no risk to humans despite their massive size: they feed on microscopic meals and have no interest in anything bigger. The popularity of this tour grows each year, though regulations are strict about how many people can visit the whale sharks at any one time to protect the integrity of the species. It’s best to book ahead to ensure your spot!
