Accompanied by an experienced guide, dive in to swim in the warm waters around Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Holbox; watch whale sharks in their natural environment; then tuck into a delicious lunch (included) of fresh ceviche.

* A traveler said: "My friends and I found this whale shark tour through 'Inspired by Maps' travel blog, and we are SO happy we did. This tour is not only the best price we found, but we could not imagine a better experience. We were picked up from our airbnb in Tulum for a small extra charge that was communicated to us beforehand, since we were so far from the tour destination in Cancun. When we arrived there was a delicious breakfast and coffee provided after a long and early drive. Our boat driver Pablo took us and 2 other small groups of people on his boat way out past Isla Mujeres to see the whale sharks. I could not believe how many whale sharks there were! Maybe more than 50 in the area we went to. Pablo and our whale shark guide were friendly and professional. There were drinks, sandwiches, and ceviche provided after swimming. I honestly could not recommend this tour more! The whale sharks are incredible and I will remember this experience for the rest of my life. It is completely unfair that someone gave a 1 star review on Viator because they did not want to pay the legitimate fee for entering a protected wildlife area."
