Whale Shark Snorkeling Adventure Ocean Tours Mexico


Today, my family and I went to the  Whale shark Snorkeling Adventure  Ocean Tours Mexico and it was Awesome!


Let me tell you our experience and most of all the quality and fun that we had today with this company.


Whale shark Snorkeling Adventure Ocean Tours Mexico !


We are here at the Riviera Maya in one of the nicest BNB that we could afford!, honestly everyting is great but we needed to go out, my wife and 12 y.o. kid wanted to do something cool and then we start asking what to do, until we talk to so many people and everything pointed to Ocean Tours, the best company to do Whale Shark Snorkeling! Sound scary at the beginning but it was nothing like that.


The company picked us up in the hotel that it was next to our BNB, it was early but we were so exited, our guide introduced to us and told us everything, how was gonna be the procedure here, when we arrive to the pier, and of course lots of interesting facts about the whale shark. Did you know that whale sharks have no teeth??, wow, plus they are massive. All this information give us the kick to be way more excited than we were before.


When we arrived to the Pier, Punta Sam, just passing Cancun, they offer us a nice breakfast with some fruit, coffee and some pastries, yummy and exactly what we needed to get some energy and start the day. We were so excited and wanted to just go and do the Whale shark Snorkeling Adventure Ocean Tours Mexico

Everyone say HI!!!!


We got into the boat, our crew Juan and Pepe, were fun and helpful, but our guide Tomas, was the best. He was with us at all times. And well it took us from the pier to the Whale Shark area around 45 min to get there, but man!, the things that we saw in our way, dolphins, sea turtles, and even a Manta-ray! And the swimming with whale sharks did not started yet! Imagine that!

Just amazing being on the boat and having these 3 dolphin friends racing with us!


So we arrived to the area, and saw our first whale shark just a couple of feet from the boat, the back fin look magnificent and then it got close to us, this water was so clear that we could see the whole body of the whale shark, everyone was more than excited. So our guide, ask us to get ready to jump. 1, 2, 3, and jump…

Snorkeling with Manta Rays and Whale Sharks - Ocean Tours Mexico

While we were swimming with the Whale Sharks these Giant Manta Rays came by to say HI!


We sank into the water and come back to the surface to follow our guide to take us as close as possible to the whale shark; and there it was!… Awesome, majestic, beautiful but huge!!!!!, we start swimming next to it, because of the excitement I never felt tired, I just couldn’t believe that I was snorkeling with the biggest fish in the world. All the spots, and how docile and nice they are. Of course there was a point that our speed did not compared to its speed and we had to stop. The boat came to pick us up, we go back to the boat with a smile on our face, we just cannot believe that we were there…

The most amazing thing is that we got the chance to jump 3 more times.. can you believe that we jumped 4 times with 4 different whale sharks, of different sizes.

My wife that normally feels seasick was so fine, although before we got into the boat, our guide offered us a seasick pill and also an acupressure wristband so she wont feel bad, and she didn’t! I think in fact, she enjoyed the most!, My son was so happy and I was the happiest of all, think about it, being in the middle of the ocean swimming with these animals, and loving every minute of it, plus your family can´t get enough of it, man! What a great deal!.

After swimming we went to Isla Mujeres to Punta Norte, (North point), to have a nice and chilled out snorkeling at the reef, and to have a delicious ceviche. Punta Norte in Isla Mujeres is considered as one of the top 10 beaches in the world
