Trip Info

This is a once in a lifetime chance to snorkel with American Crocodiles in their natural habitat. Mexico’s remote Chinchorro Atoll is the largest atoll in the western hemisphere. It is also the best place in the world to get close to American crocodiles. The spectacular viewing and photographic opportunities at Chinchorro are the result of years of careful planning and experimentation to make this the best and safest encounter that it can be.

After a daily reef dive on Chinchorro’s pristine reefs, you will spend your day snorkeling with crocs in the warm shallow water on the edge of the atoll. We will also have a chance to see manatees on the reefs around Xcalak. Join us in Mexico for an ‘off the beaten path’ expedition that you will never forget!

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