Whale Shark Swimming Tour (departs from Cabo San Lucas)

The pristine Sea of Cortez along the south eastern Baja coastline is undoubtedly the best place to swim with whale sharks. Secluded beaches, rocky islands filled with marine birds and crystal blue coves brimming with marine life are just some of the scenes you will enjoy on your way out to the whale sharks’ feeding grounds.

The whale shark is found in open waters of tropical oceans, have very large mouths and are filter feeders, their principal diet being plankton. They are the largest known living fish species and, unlike their name might imply, are completely harmless to humans.

Swimming with whale sharks in their natural habitat is a unique experience not to be missed and one you will definitely never forget.
