Swimming with Whale Sharks

Explore Swimming with Whale Sharks

This ecological phenomenon on Holbox Island occurs between May and September when whale sharks migrate to the island’s shores. These remarkable fish can grow up to 14 meters in length. The experience begins by boarding boats with a guide to embark on a search for whale sharks. Once located, participants have the opportunity to enter the water and snorkel alongside these magnificent creatures. There is no need for concern, as whale sharks are not predators, ensuring a safe and delightful encounter. On the contrary, they are regarded as adorable and friendly animals.
