A Truly "ONCE IN A LIFETIME" Experience.
Whale Sharks (RhiniodonTypus) are harmless sharks, not whales, they are the largest fish in the ocean, reaching over 50’ (15 m) and over 27,000 lb (12,500 kg).
They are filter feeders and their favorite meal is plankton. In order to feed, they scoop these tiny plants and little animals, with their colossal gaping mouths while swimming close to the water’s surface.
The average size is about 7.5 meters or 25 feet long they are enormous . Whale sharks live in warm water near the equator. The Mexican Caribbean is one of the few places in the world where they are close enough to shore to make boat trips out to see them possible. Here is the biggest congregation in all over the world.
Although massive, whale sharks are docile fish, you can safely snorkel with them while they are feeding in the surface, each encounter allows groups or 5 people to enter the water at a time along with your guide.
Our crew will brief and assist you through out the day with information about the Whale Sharks: sex, migration, behavior, feeding patterns, how to take photos and more. They will also instruct you on how to best approach and swim with the Whale Sharks, so that your day with the world’s largest fish is a truly memorable one.
During the trip you will also have the opportunity to also see dolphins and gigantic Manta rays. There are times when you will see dozens of these animals together with "jumping" manta rays out of the water, is a magnificent open ocean wild safari.
We provide you full snorkel gear and fins.
You can either use your own equipment or ours.
There is a feeling of serenity once you are floating next to these animals.
The "body language" of these magnificent creatures explains it all.
When you're too close, he will turn the opposite direction.
When he has had enough, he will go under, or swim faster.
Through Education and Photo Identification efforts, it is our goal to be part of a World Wide effort to protect and Preserve the Whale Sharks. As participants on our Whale Shark Tours, you are invited to be part of those Identification and Tracking Efforts. Our Licensed Guides will be photographing the Whale Sharks we encounter on our Tours, and then submitting the identification photographs and sighting data to ECOCEAN to become part of a World Wide Identification and Tracking Database.
Please go to www.ecocean.org and www.whaleshark.org to learn about the efforts ECOCEAN has already made and the amazing Science used to Identify and help preserve the Whale Sharks throughout the world.
