Full description
Take a dive with whale sharks in the waters of Baja California on a full-day tour from La Paz or Los Cabos. Whale sharks are filter feeders, not hunters, so it's perfectly safe to admire these gentle giants from a respectful distance with an experienced guide.

The day begins with pickup from Los Cabos. From here, drive down the Pacifico Highway crossing Todos Santos on your way to La Paz. Sail to the observation point where you can spot the 30-foot fish feeding on plankton and other microorganisms. Dive into the blue waters of the Mar de Cortes and capture the perfect shot of these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. 

Lunch and snorkel equipment are provided onboard, as well as bottled water and soft drinks. Be sure to bring an underwater camera to capture this amazing experience.
