End of the Whale Shark Season in Cancun

Whale Shark Season in Cancun is coming to an end!

These incredible creatures are part of our amazing marine life in the Mexican Caribbean, so every year we take you on a tour to swim with the gentle giants giving you a unique adventure and the opportunity to see the Whale Sharks in their natural habitat. But since September progresses, the Whale Shark Season is also.
September 15th is the last day of the Whale Shark Tour in Cancun and also the end of the Whale Shark Season. So if you haven´t swum with the gentle giants yet, you definitely have to book a tour right now, before it’s too late.

If you´re wondering why Whale Shark Season is ending, I have the answer for you. The gentle giants come to the waters surrounding Isla Mujeres, Isla Contoy and Isla Holbox to feed on plankton where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico. Since the plankton is disappearing at this time of the year, the Whale Sharks are leaving too.

If you don´t have the time to book a tour right now, you can join this amazing tour next year. The next Whale Shark Season is starting at May 15th, 2016.
But with the end of the Whale Shark Season, it´s not the end of the beautiful marine life tours. You can swim with Marine Turtles all year! Swim with the Marine Turtles in their natural habitat and snorkel in the second largest reef in the world!
