From October to April
During the season we expect the visit of more than 100 whale sharks in La Paz Bay.
The reason there is so many in such a small area is because there is lots of food: plankton, krill and other micro-organisms. These gentle giants are familiar with the small boats (pangas) that we use to visit them so they do not get frightened, neither when you snorkel along them.
ITINERARY (2-3 hours)
You will meet your guide in MARINA LA PAZ, once on the boat the guide will supply biodegradable sunscreen, wetsuits and snorkel gear and will brief you about whale shark biology, enviroment, safety and how to get the best of this experience.
After locating a whale shark the guide will organise jumps in very small groups, with only 2 people in the water at the time,respecting the distance to not disturb the whale sharks. Is quite an experience tl swim along with them and enjoy to view of these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
The tour normally lasts 2 hours, but can vary depending how far away the animals are, and how many guests are on the boat. You will get multiple opportunities to jump and snorkel with the biggest fish in the world.
Please note: The activity is restricted to people with no cardiac history or back/neck problems or pregnant woman.
Minimum age to snorkel with whale sharks is 5 years old.
You must sign a liability release prior the activity.
