Whale Shark Snorkel Tour on Isla Mujeres: From A to Z!

Did you know that Whale Sharks are technically not a whale and not a shark? They are the ocean’s largest FISH. The area around Isla Mujeres, in the Mexican Caribbean, is blessed to be a migration stop for these beautiful, gentle giants for a few months every year. People travel from all over the world for the opportunity to see these magnificent creatures up close. Are you ready to check this off of your bucket list? Or are you looking for more information about what to expect? If you will be in the area from Mid-May to Mid-September, you do NOT want to miss this opportunity. It’s an amazing experience. Here is our guide for everything you need to know about this incredible, once in a lifetime adventure! Join us with our professional, fully licensed guides, who have over 10 years of experience!

WHAT EXACTLY ARE WHALE SHARKS? ARE THEY DANGEROUS?:
Whale sharks are the largest fish in the sea, with some measuring up to 40 feet in length. They have an average life span of 70 years and average weight of 20.6 tons. They filter-feed, swimming with their wide mouths open, passively collecting plankton and small fish near the surface of the water. Their favorite meal is plankton, and this is what allows us to see them up close and personal. They are slow moving, docile creatures and listed as “Vulnerable Species” hence the regulations set forth for these tours.

WHERE DO WE MEET?:
Our convenient pick up/drop off point is right in Centro at Ballyhoo Restaurant on Isla Mujeres. It is located right behind the Pemex gas station on Rueda Medina (“the ferry street”) a few blocks North of the ferry terminal.

ITINERARY?:
The tour departs at 8:00 AM from Centro in Isla Mujeres. You can expect to travel about an hour by boat to reach the area where the whale sharks like to gather. Once you have found the whale sharks, you will have the opportunity to snorkel (or just observe) with the whale sharks accompanied by a guide in the water. From this point, the captain will be looking for more whale sharks and move locations in order to find you the best spots for observation & more snorkeling. After seeing the whale sharks you will head to the famous Playa Norte to snorkel while your guide prepares a fresh ceviche on the boat. In select cases, you can skip Playa Norte and go on a reef snorkel instead. It would be either the Yunke reef by MIA hotel or the Che reef north by Contoy island (this will be your option if you are already in the area of Contoy. See below).


HOW BIG IS THE BOAT?:
Since whale sharks are a protected species, tours are regulated to 10 people maximum per boat. We do not want to disturb their habitat with giant boats. Remember, this is their feeding ground, so, we need to respect their space and be as unobtrusive as we can. All of our boats can comfortably hold 10 people (plus your captain and tour guide). And all boats have a cover to provide shade. Scared of getting sea sick? See our PRO TIPS below.

WHAT IS INCLUDED?:
Your boat will be fully stocked with all snorkel equipment, life vests, container of purified drinking water with re-usable cups for each client to drink from (please bring your own re-usable cup if you have one!), cans of soda, and sandwiches (ham and cheese). Please note: In an effort to reduce plastic, individual one use plastic bottles of water/drinks will not be on the boat and guests are discouraged from bringing them). At the conclusion of the tour, your guide will prepare you fresh ceviche on the boat while you snorkel at Playa Norte.

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A LIFE JACKET?
Yes, it is required by law that all providers must have everyone on the boat wear a life jacket. You may opt out of wearing a life vest ONLY IF you are a certified “free diver” or “skin diver”. You must bring your certification card with you on the tour. It cannot be a certification for Scuba diving. For certified free/skin divers, wet suits can also be rented for $10 USD but, you must let us know your size 24 hours before the tour departs so we can make sure we have your size available and ready.

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY BIODEGRADABLE SUNSCREEN IS PERMITTED TO BE USED ON THIS TOUR.

SWIMMING WITH THE WHALE SHARKS:
The laws for 2019 ask that each client limit their swim with the whale sharks to two times. Not to worry, we will ensure that you have all the extra time you need on each swim. And if you don’t swim well, not to worry, your guide will snorkel with you and hold your hand.

LICENSES/CERTIFICATIONS:
Anyone providing a whale shark tour MUST have government permission to do so! There are only a limited number of licenses that are granted each year as whale sharks are a protected species. Not everyone who wants one, is granted one. Our professional tour guides have over TEN YEARS of experience doing whale shark tours and have not one but TWO licenses to conduct these tours. What does that mean? Many providers have one license for Blue Water. That means they can provide tours in one specified area. We have licenses for Blue Water AND Green Water. Green Water allows our guides to take you to a second area north of Contoy Island if they are not finding whale sharks in Blue Water. This doubles your odds of finding whale sharks. (If you would like a copy of our licenses for 2018, please email us.)

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GO?:
This is a hard question to answer. The season in 2018 is May 15 – Sept 18. Historically the most whale sharks are here during July & August. BUT, one of our first days this May, over 40 whale sharks were spotted! Our guide had some interesting advice. He said the BEST days for spotting lots of whale sharks are always when it is a full moon or close to a full moon. Why? Because fish tend to lay their eggs in plankton during full moons. And the whale sharks follow the food.

ARE THERE ANY DAYS YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOUR?:
Yes, our guides have a set day of rest on the following dates ONLY: May 30, June 30, July 30, August 30. Other than these 4 dates, the tour is available DAILY May 15th to September 15th 2018!

I DON’T WANT TO GO WITH OTHER PEOPLE, CAN I ARRANGE A PRIVATE TOUR FOR MY GROUP?:
Absolutely! You can arrange a private tour for 1-10 people. Please see below for pricing.

WHAT IS THE PRICING:
A) Pricing for this tour is regulated by the government. It is $125 USD per person (which includes dock fee & reef tax).
B) For PRIVATE GROUPS, pricing is as follows:
1-5 people – $900 USD total (includes dock fee & reef tax)
6-8 people – $1,100 USD total (includes dock fee & reef tax)
9-10 people – $1,250 USD total (includes dock fee & reef tax)

CAN I BRING SMALL CHILDREN?:
For our public tours, the minimum age is 10 years old. In our experience, smaller children are more prone to sea sickness & the effects of long hours in the sun. So, as a public tour, for the comfort of other passengers, we kindly ask that only children ages 10 and above come along. We absolutely have the option of booking a private tour for your family if you have younger children! See above.


WHAT DO YOU TIP FOR A WHALE SHARK TOUR?:
Tipping is always a tricky subject. It’s personal. Mexico is an incredibly tip heavy country. Salaries are based on the expectation of employees receiving tips. So, for those wondering what is a good way to tip: We recommend tipping as you would in a restaurant, about 20% of the price of the tour, or more based on service. You will have a Captain and 1 guide on your boat. They share all tips received. As always, tipping can be done in pesos or USD. All is deeply appreciated by the staff.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE I WILL SEE WHALE SHARKS?
We wish we could! One thing to remember is that these are wild creature in a vast body of water. Our guides have a great relationship with other providers and have communication with other whale shark captains so, they report to each other in real time when and where they have found whale sharks. They are not competing against each other. The goal is common amongst providers: Create the best experience possible for you. Keep in mind that the whale shark season also coincides with sea turtle mating season and there are also more schools of manta rays in the area. So, you have the ability to swim with sea turtles, manta rays and even pods of dolphins if you are lucky! Last year, we had 12 occasions where guests were able to swim with dolphins in the wild!

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO SNORKEL AND JUST WANT TO OBSERVE?:
This is totally fine. Some people are not comfortable getting in the water with these giant creatures. There is no price difference if you simply observe or snorkel.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TOUR IS CANCELED DUE TO RAIN?:
When it is windy and rains hard, the whale sharks dive deeper and the tour will be canceled if the conditions are too bad. You may reschedule for a later date. If your tour was canceled due to weather, and you are unable to re-schedule, your deposit will be refunded.

Super fun and cool tour...The best tour ever! We really enjoyed this extreme adventure tour with CARM Tours and Transfers. Our entire family had such a great time.....There was another big family group that it was annoying on the way to the park from the snorkeling are, they were drinking and yelling the whole 15min drive, might I suggest to don't let people drink while you picked them up from the hotel to the park. They are professional and friendly when explaining everything (they make it sound so easy haha).

Fun and extremely challenging. Later on the ATV, this was a difficult part for me but it was still exciting, never drove one before. Lastly the Cenote, a great way to finish your day with a good splash in refreshing natural water. Our group was small and we all got along pretty well. The cochinita tacos at the end were also great, nice Habanero salsa. I really recommend getting the pictures, the team is really great capturing funny and exciting moments during the whole experience.

We did snorkel first and it was clear crystal water. The team was really nice and professional. I see people complaining about life jackets, this is to protect the reef and make sure you're not a smartass and try to dive in and touch or step into anything, a lot of us can swim but you still need to abide by the rules since this is a protected area. The fish tacos after the snorkeling were great! You need to visit this place for sure!

    About Whale Sharks: The whale shark is the biggest shark and the biggest fish. It is NOT a whale. It has a huge mouth which can be up to 4 feet wide. This enormous shark is a filter feeder and sieves enormous amounts of plankton, krill, small fish, and squid to eat through its gills as it swims. The shark can process over 1500 gallons (6000 liters) of water each hour. Whale sharks are slow swimmers, going no more than 3 mph (5 kph). Whale sharks are harmless to people and usually indifferent to divers. This shark swims slowly near the surface, consuming small crustacean plankton and small fishes. Plankton is it's main source of food.
