Whale Shark Encounter - Pictures & all fees included

We are ranked #2 on TripAdvisor (not only with whale shark tours), because we are passionate about what we do. Your experience matters to us and we want you to have the best day of your vacation with us.

Our guests love the early arrival at the port and being one of the first boats out on the open water. They love our homemade sandwiches and fresh brewed coffee, fun and professional crew, comfortable boats, clean and new snorkel gear, the lunch at the north beach and our pictures, which we include in the tour price. Just look us up and read what they have to say about us.

Environmental awareness and sustainability matters to us! All our tours are as good as plastic free. We have redesigned our operation to produce minimal waste, which we recycle.

Kay Tours Mexico was the first supplier to offer reusable water bottles and thus avoids over 2000 disposable plastic bottles per year.

    • Tips

  • In the best-case scenario the boat ride takes around half an hour and in the worst case up to three hours. We don’t want to scare you, we want to be honest. Looking for whale sharks in the middle of the ocean is similar to searching the needle in the haystack.

    Once the boat is in the right position the mate or the captain will give you the signal to get into the water. In the water your guide will lead you toward a whale shark, which you will be snorkeling next to. Your guide will be next to you the entire time, taking care of you.
