From mid-May to mid-September, whale sharks gather in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. You must not miss this wonderful show, so start planning your next adventure with us!
Starting in mid-May, the Mexican Caribbean is the best place to swim with these beautiful and gigantic sea creatures! The whale shark is the largest fish in the world, up to 15 meters long. They gather in the Yucatan peninsula, specifically in the protected area of Yum Balam, in the north of Cancun, due to the warm sea currents that promote the growth of plankton they feed.
Do not be afraid! They are very docile, gentle and are not afraid of divers or swimmers approaching them.
