Swim with Whale Sharks in Cancun
"Our guides were very accommodating and helpful! They mentioned that it was the first sighting of the whale sharks of this particular season, so we felt really lucky to be apart of the migration. The actual jumps were well organized, efficient, and safe. We were provided sandwiches and fruit before leaving, and given water bottles throughout. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone that wants to get up close and personal with these incredible animals. We were even able to see a large group of manta rays and dolphins! The tour lasted about 6-7 hours in total which the group agreed was plenty of time to feel like we got our money’s worth. Thank you!"..."

Private and Shared Whale Shark Tour from Tulum
"My friends and I found this whale shark tour through 'Inspired by Maps' travel blog, and we are SO happy we did. This tour is not only the best price we found, but we could not imagine a better experience. We were picked up from our airbnb in Tulum for a small extra charge that was communicated to us beforehand, since we were so far from the tour destination in Cancun. When we arrived there was a delicious breakfast and coffee provided after a long and early drive. Our boat driver Pablo took us and 2 other small groups of people on his boat way out past Isla Mujeres to see the whale sharks. I could not believe how many whale sharks there were! Maybe more than 50 in the area we went to. Pablo and our whale shark guide were friendly and professional. There were drinks, sandwiches, and ceviche provided after swimming. I honestly could not recommend this tour more! The whale sharks are incredible and I will remember this experience for the rest of my life. It is completely unfair that someone gave a 1 star review on Viator because they did not want to pay the legitimate fee for entering a protected wildlife area."..."
