The Best Place To Swim with Whale Sharks

From May to September, the Whale Shark Biosphere Reserve becomes a feeding ground for large congregations of whale sharks. The reserve is about an hour by boat from Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The large number of sharks found here during the peak of the season makes Isla Mujeres our favorite place to embark on a whale shark adventure.

The photos below are from our 2015 Whale Shark Adventure in Mexico (July 29 – Aug 2).
