In the months of May through September are the arrival of Whale sharks in the northern Yucatan Peninsula. This Congregation is the largest of these animals through all over the world.
Let me explain how this starts. The first sightings were made by fishermen in Holbox. They started with this activity over 4 years ago .
Studying behavior and migration of the animals, they have moved now to blue waters, north of Isla Mujeres, which is why we left north of Cancun or Isla mujeres, to navigate to this area. In Holbox mixing the water from the Gulf of Mexico, takes a greenish color. We see them north of Isla Contoy swimming in blue water , doing a better encounter.
Last season National Geographic channel and Scuba diver life web site , contacted us to film these animals, the world's largest fish, is an animal that transmits calm and completely harmless, is surely a unique spectacle. Safe and fun for all the family.
We sailed about 1:10 - 1:30 minutes to encounter site.
On the way sometimes we find and swim with Manta rays ( Manta Birostris ) and Dolphins.
Having located the specimens we do snorkel with this fantastic creature until the cold makes us out of the water. About 2- 3hrs.
