La Paz: Experience Swimming with a Whale Shark

1. La Paz: Experience Swimming with a Whale Shark

Cruise from  La Paz to the conservation area to swim with the whale sharks. Swim with an expert, ensuring that you are safe and confident with these amazing creatures. Snorkel at a nearby reef, visit a beautiful marina, or the city of La Paz while you wait to see the sharks, knowing that you are waiting because this endangered species is protected, so only a limited number of boats can visit at once. Enjoy seasonal fruits, waters, sodas. After your swim, have a few beers on the water. See the beautiful bay of the city of La Paz as you return to the same marina that you left from.

There are few experiences in the world that match swimming alongside the largest, most majestic fish in the sea. Spend an unforgettable day swimming among whale sharks, often called the "gentle giants," and have the adventure of a lifetime. Begin the tour with a relaxing drive out of Cabo San Lucas and through the beautiful Californian desert aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Once in La Paz, board a luxury boat and set off into the stunning Sea of Cortés to observe the clusters of whale sharks and other marine life that gather there during the winter. Suit up in your snorkeling gear and dive into the clear waters of the Sea of Cortés for a snorkel of a lifetime. Get up close and personal with not only whale sharks, but dolphins, sting rays and other fascinating underwater creatures. Once you've snorkeled to your heart's desire, enjoy a short break in La Paz to stroll around the beautiful boardwalk and indulge in a local lunch of Baja-style tacos and cold drinks before heading back to Cabo.

Cabo San Lucas: Full-Day Whale Shark Swimming Experience

3. Cabo San Lucas: Full-Day Whale Shark Swimming Experience

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.

What people are saying about La Paz, Mexico

An amazing experience, Alex was our guide, so informative and helped make it the best experience! The waters were rough to swim in due to a storm passing, but he worked so hard to help us swim in the waters to be close to those gentle giants in order to see them up close, will definitely book again in January at some point in future as that is when they are at their peak, so glad I did this tour
