Snorkeling with Whale Sharks – Isla Mujeres, Mexico
August 14-20, 2011
Come to Isla Mujeres this summer!! Why? Because if you are an ocean enthusiast then at some point in your life you’ve probably dreamed about swimming with the largest fish in the sea! No, not whales…the largest FISH…we’re talking WHALE SHARKS baby!!!
Isla Mujeres has THE LARGEST GATHERING of whale sharks in the world and you don’t have to be a diver to get in the water with these monolithic sharks – this is a snorkeling opportunity! And that means, that all the friends you’ve always wanted to bring on a Global Dive adventure who are not divers, can come and join in ALL the fun. The sharks are right at the surface so SCUBA isn’t necessary and bubbles can spook the sharks so all encounters are done by snorkeling.
Check out this cool video! Whale Sharks of Isla Mujeres
Last summer, over 500 whale sharks gathered off the coast! Check out this amazing video of whale sharks off Isla Mujeres. We’ll be doing some talks about these incredible animals so you know exactly what you are seeing in the water.
So what’s the plan? We will spend about 3-4 days with the whale sharks. We’ll go out in private boats with less than 10 snorkelers per boat. Then we rotate in and out of the water 2-4 at a time with a guide so you have an uncrowded, once in a lifetime experience! We’ll return early afternoon each day so you can have time to hit the beach, swim, or grab a hammock and spend the rest of the afternoon dreaming about what you just saw – while sipping an icy margarita of course!
Isla Mujeres also has a funky little town and you can take a golf cart around the entire island.
For divers, we will also offer the opportunity to do one or two mornings of reef diving off the Isla Mujeres coast in a marine park. As well, we will offer a day to venture to some of the great Mayan ruins of Yucatan region for those interested.
Where will we stay? As with all of our adventures, we stay in luxury, comfort and style! We will be using the boutique hotel, Villa Rolandi – a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World – with sweet rooms, a white sand beach, two pools, great restaurant and a full spa!
