Swimming with the whale shark is a unique experience that you can live whether you visit Cancun or Los Cabos. Despite their large size, whale sharks pose no danger to humans, they are gentle and docile creatures.
The whale shark season in Cancun is from May to September. The best months for sighting and swimming are July and August in the nearby islands of Holbox, Contoy, and Isla Mujeres. This is something that you should include if you are vacationing there.
In Los Cabos, it starts from September to April. Here, the top period for sighting and swimming is from November to March, being the best places Cabo Pulmo and La Paz. Right in the group season, a plus for any participant or a great activity during your vacations.
Due to the increased popularity of this activity, the Mexican Conservation Authorities have established rules to protect the whale shark, including strict measures for tour operators who must have not only the corresponding licenses but also the necessary training to move in the water and do not collide with whale sharks.
