This is a seasonal activity. The Whale Shark season starts in May and ends in September every year. If you are visiting the Riviera Maya area between May – September, this is an experience not to be missed!
The Whale Shark is completely harmless to humans, it is actually a very docile and curious creature. The Whale Shark swims very slowly on the surface which makes it easy and relaxing to swim with them.
Swimming with the Whale Sharks is done by groups of 2 people accompanied by a certified guide at all times.
