Can You Swim With Whale Sharks In Cabo Mexico?
Whale sharks don't come near the cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, but this doesn't mean you can't swim with them when staying in Cabo. With Cabo Adventures, we will take you on a two-hour scenic road to La Paz, where then you will hop on a boat that will take you to the swim of your life with these gentle giants of the sea!
Our whale shark snorkeling excursion in La Paz is sure to be an unforgettable experience for you, and we are sure it has exactly what you are looking for. Enjoy the spectacle of your life with these amazing creatures with the help of our professional bilingual guides.
Few experiences in the world match cruising alongside the largest fish in the ocean—especially when that fish is a shark! But don't worry, the whale sharks in Mexico are known as the "gentle giants of the sea!” Get the chance of a lifetime for a Cabo whale shark dive on our spectacular Whale Shark Encounter tour here at Cabo Adventures.
Whale shark snorkeling may be the focal point of this incredible tour, but it’s far from the only exciting activity you’ll get to take part in. Our tour stretches from Cabo to La Paz and starts on land, where you’ll get an intimate introduction to the Baja landscape on your way to the water.
Experience a scenic two-hour drive to La Paz and receive a back-door tour of Baja California Sur on this ecological adventure.
Once we’ve arrived at the water, our expert tour guides will brief you on everything you need to know about sharks in La Paz. After that, we’ll take a short boat ride to the areas where these magnificent animals are found.
Jump in and snorkel beside these massive yet peaceful fish and witness the enormity and beauty that nature has to offer. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for dolphins, rays, whales, and other exciting sea life!
What Are Whale Sharks In Cabo Like?
Whale sharks in Cabo are slow-moving, filter-feeding carpet sharks found in tropical and warm-temperate seas. They are the largest extant fish species and, when fully grown, can weigh well over 20,000 pounds and reach lengths easily exceeding 30 feet.
Though whale sharks are technically sharks, their behavior and anatomy do not resemble what many people think of (and fear) when they think of “sharks.” Like whales, whale sharks feed on plankton and other very small nektonic life. They are not aggressive and pose virtually no risk to human divers.
