Whale Shark Encounter

Swim alongside the largest fish in the ocean with our experienced bilingual guides in a small group format. This is a journey unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Witness the enormity and beauty that nature has to offer.

Enjoy a 2 hour scenic drive to La Paz and experience a back-door tour of Baja California Sur on this ecological adventure. These Whale Sharks are known as the “gente giants of the sea”. Jump in and snorkel beside these massive Whale Sharks and witness the beauty of nature. This tour has limited space and includes a delicious Baja style lunch in a local restaurant.

Whale sharks don’t come near the cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, but this doesn’t mean you can’t swim with them when staying in Cabo. With Cabo Adventures we will take you on a two hour scenic road to La Paz where then you will hop on a boat that will take you to the swim of your life with these gentle giants of the sea!

Our whale shark snorkeling excursion in La Paz is sure to be an unforgettable experience for you, and we are sure it has exactly what you are looking for. Enjoy the spectacle of your life with these amazing creatures with the help of our professional bilingual guides.

There are few experiences in the world that match cruising alongside the largest fish in the ocean—especially when that fish is a shark! But don’t worry, the whale sharks in Mexico are known as the “gentle giants of the sea!” Get the chance of a lifetime for a Cabo whale shark dive on our spectacular Whale Shark Encounter tour here at Cabo Adventures.

Whale shark snorkeling may be the focal point of this incredible tour, but it’s far from the only exciting activity you’ll get to take part in. Our tour stretches from Cabo to La Paz and starts on land, where you’ll get an intimate introduction to the Baja landscape on your way to the water.
