We'll meet 8:00 am at the Perla Negra big pier entrance or at the arranged location when pick up is requested from Cancun (for private trips), at meeting we will have time to prepare for the trip, prepare cameras and give you a briefing talking about how to approach the shark, shark biology and everything you need to know to bring the best out of your day.
You'll be boarding on a official whale shark tour boat specifically made to meet the tourism goverment standards equiped with twin eco outboard engines, bathroom, gps, compass, VHF Radio and shade for your safety and the whale sharks.
On the way to the Whale Shark Area we may encounter jumping dolphins, mantas or turtles that wander trough the vast ocean so the captain may stop to enjoy this magnificent animals, depending on their behavior, your guide will slowly dose bits of marine life knowledge from time to time bringing you quality to your trip.
And so after a 50 min boat ride groups of
40 feet long Whale sharks miigth be spotted by the crew! sometimes they congregate in groups of 100eds and sometimes there is no sharks but that usually happens when we have bad weather conditions and we are not able to see the fins clearly because of the heavy waves and also whale sharks avoid enoying waves and go lower from the surface instead making it harder for us to find them.
Let no time to waste and get your mask, fins and camera ready because YOU are going in the ocean with them my friend! and they are not alone sometimes there is even huge caribbean manta rays swimming nearby as they also feed on plankton and fish eggs.
so you did it! and realized they swim way faster than you...after all the swimming and the awesomeness you will be hungry so thats why we will have ready for you tropical fruits, sandwiches, water and sodas!!.
Shortly after We'll be heading back to Isla Mujeres to find a good spot to relax and have some drinks on its turquoise waters.
Playa norte famous beach is a must stop if you still feel like enjoying some time with the crew!!!
Enjoy the rest of the trip while swimming on turquoise shallow waters where you can pop a beer or two :)
We'll be heading back to the marina and hopefully we achieved our goal of creating a better relationship between you and nature building conscience and hoping that in the future we all keep supporting conservation initiatives protecting marine life around the globe.
