mexico, snorkelling, whale sharks

It's whale shark season!! Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to snorkel with the gentle giants of the ocean in Mexico. Regaldive guests visiting Mexico’s Riviera Maya and Cozumel can now experience the wonders of snorkelling with whale sharks first hand with our NEW whale shark excursions. Pre-book your whale shark experience before 31 May 2014 for just £95pp! Normal rate is £140pp.

From June to September, migrating whale sharks come to feed on plankton in the Gulf of Mexico accompanied by manta rays, turtles and dolphins. Learn more about these gentle giants and swim with them in the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserve of Yum Balam. This snorkelling experience is undertaken with specialist guides and only two guests are allowed into the water at any one time. After three or four hours, the boat continues onto the spectacularly beautiful Isla Mujeres for more pristine snorkelling and a spot of relaxation and some local ceviche on board.

Whale shark encounters are guaranteed  from June until August which means if you don't get the chance to see the whale sharks then you can join the excursion on another day. Trips are generally run daily throughout the season. Part of the proceeds from these trips helps fund whale shark conservation activities in association with Project Aware.
