About Eco Aventura Maya

They already have more than 19 years of experience running whale shark adventure tours. They work with small groups to protect nature and to make sure that everyone gets enough time to snorkel with the whale sharks.

All of their guides are biologists and naturalists. They can provide you with all the needed information about the whale sharks and their natural habitat.

If you want to spend more time with these incredible fish than this trip is made for you. You have the chance to make a perfect picture from (and with) the whale sharks. You can even analyze if you´re the first one who spotted a particular whale shark. If you are, you are able to give this whale shark a name. In this 7-day tour you will learn a lot about the whale sharks, their behavior, and their environment. Thereby, you will also encounter other species living in this area, like: mobulas, golden cownose rays, manta rays and even dolphins.

During this tour you will leave to the water surroundings where the whale sharks live, for 4 days in a row. Really, this tour is so much more than a wildlife experience. This tour is a real once in a lifetime experience, which you will remember yourself for decades.

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.
