Whales sharks are some of the largest and most docile creatures on earth, and on this tour you can admire them up close and personal. After pickup at your hotel, travel to a marina to enjoy a continental breakfast and get acquainted with your guides, who will explain some rules to follow in the water. Take a boat to the spot where the whale sharks swim, with the opportunity to share the water with this majestic marine mammal if you so choose. Afterward, enjoy a ceviche and a drink aboard the boat before the return journey.

Highly recommend. Great experience with friendly English and Spanish speaking tour guides. No bathrooms on the boats though so plan ahead.
