Full description
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.

Wonderful with a couple big glitches!!!!

It was a unique and amazing experience! The whale sharks were beautiful and our guides Aaron and Razz were AWESOME!!! They made us feel very safe and well prepared. Aaron was an amazing guide in the water- extremely helpful and took great pictures! Two problems- the first was when our trip got cancelled the first day. We waited from 7:00 am for 30 minutes and then had the concierge call. It had been cancelled and we were never notified!!!! We were rebooked at that time two days later. Secondly, the tour said that it was going to stop at Hotel California for a drink. Well, as soon as we got on the bus, we were informed that we would not be going there because it would be too busy. So part of our itinerary that we were very excited about was not included. This is an expensive tour, and we should have been told ahead of time about this change. The whale shark part was awesome though and a once in a lifetime experience!

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
