Whale Shark Snorkeling



Tour Description

This is a full day tour from 9:00 – 17:00. It takes 2 hours each way in an air-conditioned van from our shop in Cabo San Lucas to the beachfront in La Paz. The area where the whale sharks are most likely to be, is only 15 – 30 minutes away by boat depending on sea conditions. When we get to the area we will start the search.

When we spot a whale shark we will then get ready and wait for the perfect time to get in the water with them. The whale sharks do not always stay in one position. We will most probably enter the water several time to be as close as possible to them. Please note, they are wild animals in their natural habitat and constantly moving. The chances are very likely that you’ll see them.  Our whale shark snorkeling tour is fun and educational experience for the whole family.

After 2 hours out there in the ocean we go and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in La Paz before the journey back to Cabo San Lucas. On the way back you will see the famous “Hotel California” and the beautiful scenery of the southern Baja California.
