Whale Shark Tour Itinerary

Our tour departs everyday at 8:00 am (meeting time 7:45 am if staying on the island at our office in downtown isla Mujeres)

Once on the boat we provide drinks such as bottled water and sodas.  As soon as we arrive to the area we start going in the water two participants at a time with our experienced guide.  We will give you all the time you need to swim with these amazing creatures, always taking turns.  Our amazing captain does a great job by positioning the boat in a way that the whale shark will pass right next to you when you enter the water!

We may also swim with huge mantas, turtles and even dolphins! We never know what the ocean has to offer us each day.

After this we will offer you ham and cheese sandwiches while we are headed to a shallow reef for some more snorkeling (optional)

Then we will go to the nicest beach of our island, North Beach where we stop the boat in shallow water for you to relax, take a bath and have a drink while our crew prepares a fresh and delicious ceviche for everybody.

After lunch we return to the dock at approximately between 1 and 2 pm.

** We have vegetarian lunch available.  Should there be any special request please let us know and we will do our best to please you.
