Every year they pass by and stay around the Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Isla Holbox areas. High Concentrations of plankton allow this wonderful event to happen close to our Cancun coast.
divePro Cancun Diving brings you to a once in a lifetime experience, a meeting with nature’s biggest fish. A close encounter with these gentle giants that enhances your Cancun vacation.Some time ago, the only departures to the Whale shark migration, could only be done from Holbox Island, now from Isla Mujeres. Today our departures are from the 2 docks we have helped renew one North of Puerto Juárez and another by the Punta Sam Ferry Dock dock, 15 minutes away from Cancun’s Hotel Zone.
Following ecological rules along with National Park procedures, only 2 snorkelers are allowed in the water at a time so they have a certain amount of time to snorkel with the Whale sharks. Every Snorkeler has their fair share of turns. If your party is not a pair number or you are one person, it will not matter.
After snorkeling with the Whale sharks you may encounter Manta Rays, dolphins and go snorkeling to a nice coral reef area.
Round Trip Transportation: Pick up times depend on your hotel’s location but maybe around 7am, drop off time depends on how far we went to spot the migration and how long the group of snorkelers stay, drop off is between 2:30 and 3 pm.

NO SCUBA DIVING. We would love to go diving among the Whale Sharks in Cancun but we must obey the National Park Rules THERE IS NO DIVING WITH WHALE SHARKS IN THESE AREAS. IF YOU ARE OFFERED THIS SERVICE YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED.
Unlike several Operators or Travel Agents, we do not like to force transportation to our guests and make money on that as well, our guests are welcome to drive their rental car or use their own taxi, we do work with a transportation company that can quote depending on where our guests are staying.
PLEASE BE AWARE that this is an Open Ocean activity and there is no control over winds and waves so if you GET SEASICK please have sea sickness medication prior to the tour.
Whale Sharks as other fish feed on water organisms therefore they filter water and the water must be CLEAN so ONLY BIODEGRADABLE tanning lotions are the ONLY tanning lotions accepted.
Why use our Whaleshark snorkeling services?
We are dedicated exclusively to scuba diving and snorkeling in Cancun and surrounding areas with 15 years of experience.
We have been dedicated to the Whale Shark snorkeling since we were allowed to provide the service from Cancun and used to provide it from Isla Mujeres. Our Captains are the most experienced in the area and are pioneer scouts that are every year the first ones to find the whale shark migration, determine its path and predict its arrival to our Cancun coast.
WHY PAY MORE?
After many years of providing services to Travel Agencies that send us their clients, we decided in 2010 to have our own Internet Marketing and our own guests offering a very competitive price since we do not have to pay commissions.
Many web pages you find are the “middle man” who gets a commission from the operators and also charge YOU for their third party services.
WE ARE A MEXICAN COMPANY unlike others, that have to call themselves nick names and use strange websites, taking the profits out of the country not benefiting our area, our culture and our whale sharks, offering Whale Shark Tours in Cancun that try by all means to compete with our Internet Operation.
Others do the typical hook and switch stating the cheapest price but not mentioning until later the “other costs” such as transportation, National Park Fee, Snorkeling gear rentals etc.
Other “cheaper offers” involve time share presentations. AVOID, having to either rent an airplane or a 6hr total drive to Holbox Island, it is located on another state and the Whale Sharks travel there after visiting our areas, at this sites the water turns green not allowing a great visibility, at our areas visibility is fantastic but sometimes affected by Plankton itself.
We are a simple straight; forward small company that welcomes you to a simple easy going experience from the first email to the last interaction.
