Transportation - We are the first!

  • Getting up early is the key to a successful and fun packed whale shark encounter. We leave port at 08:00 AM in order to be first out on the water. That means pick up at your hotel or vacation rental can be early, but it's worth it!

  • Round trip transportation included. There might be a small fuel surcharge for hotel south of Playa del Carmen and north of Cancun

  • Homemade sandwiches (vegan & vegetarian options)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

BUY A GUARANTEE
  • We do offer an "insurance" for the unlikely event that we do not find any whale shark during your tour. We always do our best and go more than that extra mile to search and find what you came for, the whale shark.

  • We have to point out, it is not a petting zoo! it is rather a safari than a predictable tour and we can't guarantee the sightings of certain animals nor will we refund any money, since the costs are the same, with or without an encounter.

  • For an additional USD 20.00 per person we will take you a second time, a different day, on our tour in the rare event of no sightings of whale sharks during your first tour. You will find that option during the check-out process. Please check the box in case you opt in for the guarantee.
