Trip Info

Incredible Whale Shark Encounters. This is your chance to swim with the largest fish in the world.

In July and August, hundreds of whale sharks migrate to the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and form the largest whale shark aggregation in sea. On this trip, you will have the chance to experience them first hand by swimming alongside these gentle giants. Snorkeling within touching distance of the largest fish in the sea is an experience you will never forget.

The area where the whale sharks gather attract other large animals too. Although we’re never sure exactly what we’ll see, it is quite common for us to run into large schools of manta rays. Some years, we see them in their hundreds!

Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
