During this season, hundreds of sharks congregate in the north of the Yucatan Peninsula where there is a high presence of plankton to feed. The whale shark is the largest fish in the world and is a gentle, harmless animal. It feeds on plankton and small fish, which it filters into its huge toothless mouth.

The boat trip lasts between 1 hour and 1 hour and a half in boats with a maximum capacity of 10 people. We remain in the sighting area for 2-3 hours. During this time you will have the opportunity to make a maximum of 2 jumps into the water with the shark swimming close to it.

The activity consists of swimming with the shark that is on the surface feeding by filtering water. There is no diving and it is suitable for everyone. The minimum age is 6 years old, consider the boat ride and that you must know how to swim to decide if the children are ready for this activity. This activity is not suitable for pregnant women due to the boat ride.

On the way back we stop in front of Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres for refreshments and return to the marina in Cancun.
