Note: It is important to know that human cannot control nature. So, Eco Aventura Maya cannot guarantee the snorkeling with the whale sharks nor the sightings. The whale sharks come to the waters near Cancun to feed on plankton, but when there is no / not much plankton there are no / a few whale sharks. It is recommended you make your reservation between mid-June to August. In this period there is a higher possibility to see whale sharks.
