Snorkel with whale sharks

November – May.

Snorkel with whale sharks from Cabo San Lucas. Snorkeling with whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez is one of the most wonderful things you can do in Mexico.

Whale sharks are in the area from November to April, this is when there is plankton for them to feed on.  The whale sharks swim slowly and filter feed at the surface.  Whale sharks feed only on plankton and other very small nektonic life. They are not aggressive in any way and don’t even have teeth.

On your boat ride in the bay of La Paz, don’t forget to keep an eye out for dolphins, rays, and other exciting sea life along the way! This is an incredible experience, you can swim alongside the biggest fish on the planet in harmony.
