Full Description:

Swimming with whale sharks in Cancun will change your way of seeing nature forever! Not everyone has the opportunity or dares to do this, since this animal is the largest fish in the world: a whale shark can be up to 12 meters long while it can weigh more than 20 tons.

Whale sharks are known to be friendly to divers and swimmers, which is why the interest of travelers for going swimming with whale sharks in Cancun has increased in recent years. This activity poses no risk to you despite the enormous size of these fish: they feed on phytoplankton, algae, small crabs, squid, sardines and tuna and through water filtering.
