WHALE SHARKS HOLBOX

Isla Holbox is a small island of the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.  It is famous around the world for it's whale shark migration, first noted by the famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau.  Every summer, huge numbers of whale sharks grace the waters of Holbox to feed on the plankton blooms the summer brings - the largest gathering of such sharks in the world.  During this tour you will get to actually swim and snorkel with the world's biggest fish - a once in a lifetime experience - one for the ages!  Don't worry, though - the sharks are harmless, they eat only plankton.  They don't even have teeth!

"This was a highlight of our trip to Mexico.  The Whale Shark we swam with was beautiful.  We also saw stingrays (or man rays as the captain called them).  My children had not even snorkeled before and was very excited and awed by the whole adventure. The trip was long in getting there (Holbox), but the island (which was beautiful and seemingly untouched by developers) and the swimming with the sharks was well worth it!  AND the meal was wonderful.  :)  Again - this was a highlight of our trip and would recommend it to all of my friends!" - Johanna from Texas
